REPORT OF THE INSPECTOR OF ANIMALS 



January 1, 1931. 
To the Selectmen of Medfield: 

I hereby submit to you the report of my work for the past 
year. 

In December, 1929, I received orders from the Director of 
the Division of Animal Industry, State House, Boston, Mass., 
to make the annual complete census and inspection of all cattle, 
sheep, swine, and goats, kept in this town, also the condition 
of the stables in which they are kept, this inspection to be com- 
pleted not later than March 1, 1930. 

During this examination, I visited 35 stables in which are 
kept 309 cattle, 278 swine, no sheep and 2 goats. The animals 
all appeared healthy physically and stables kept in very good 
condition. Of these 309 cattle, 192 were Tuberculin tested 
under State and Federal supervision. There are a number of 
more cattle under supervision at this date. 

During the past year, 5 dogs were quarantined for Rabies. 
These dogs had bitten different people and after a period of 
14 days, not showing any signs of the disease, were released. 

About September 1, 1930, a dog was taken sick and owner 
sent it to a hospital. At the hospital the dog showed signs of 
Rabies and later died. 

September 4, 1930, I quarantined 2 dogs that had been in 
contact with the dog that had died, these dogs were inoculated 
to prevent Rabies and at the expiration of 21 days were re- 
leased. 

October 17, 1930, 8 swine were quarantined for Cholera. 
These swine were inoculated to prevent this disease but were 
too sick at the time of treatment and later died. 



Yours truly, 



GEORGE S. CHENEY, 

Inspector of Animals.

REPORT OF THE CEMETERY COMMISSIONERS 



To the Board of Selectmen: 

In addition to our general work this year, in the cemetery, 
we had to care for all the soldiers' graves in accordance with a 
law recently passed by the Commonwealth, and this extra work 
add to cost of maintenance every year. 

In the new section developed this year, known as Section D, 
the lots are laid out with bound markers at the corners, and 
quite a number of lots have been sold. The avenues between 
this section and section C have been laid out but not as yet 
built. 

For the ensuing year, we would recommend an appropriation 
of $2000.00. 

Yours truly, 

DANIELS HAMANT, 
JOSEPH A. ROBERTS, 
JOHN R. MILLER, 

Commissioners. 
December 31, 1930.

REPORT OF WATER AND SEWERAGE BOARD 



Water Department 



The very bad condition of the old main line in North Street 
is certainly not improving, and provision should be made the 
coming season for relaying at least a portion of North Street 
from Main Street to the present 4-inch cast iron pipe at Dale 
Street, with cast iron pipe, in case a new water system is not 
started this season. 

The sizes for the new pipe can be figured to fit into whatever 
system is adopted, provided the supply comes from the north. 
It will require 2,250 feet of 14-inch, 12-inch and 10-inch main 
line besides the 8-inch and 6-inch for connecting the side streets, 
also setting the necessary hydrants. 

An appropriation of $10,500.00 will be required. 

A separate appropriation of $2,000.00 will be needed for con- 
necting the houses and vacant lots to the main line. 

The pumping record shows 25,492,791 gallons for the year — 
average per day 69,843 gallons — heaviest day 129,885 gallons — 
lightest day 54,404 gallons. The decrease from 1929 of 
4,680,220 gallons can be accounted for by the past very dry 
season, when a large majority of the water takers gave up try- 
ing to save their lawns and gardens; also there were no fires 
that required a large draft on the Fire Reservoirs. 

During the year, there were five new services added, ten re- 
newed and five repaired. 

Under the present ruling of the Water Board, the Water 
Department furnishes and repairs the service pipe from the 
main to the street line, which decreases somewhat the amount 
of money coming back into the Town Treasury from above 
sources. 

In the event of next season being a very dry one, we may 
have to make more repairs on the suction line. The past season, 
on account of air leaks showing in the joints of the suction line, 



83 

when the level of the ground water in the meadow went below 
the center, and in some cases the bottom of the wooden suction 
pipe, air leaks developed, and we were obliged to repair thirteen 
joints at a cost of $278.44 in order to keep the pumps running 
until the rains came. 

In order to meet our budget for the coming year, which antic- 
ipates about the usual number of new services, renewals and 
repairs, also emergencies like the suction pipe job, we ask for 
an appropriation of $3,800.00. 

During the year the Treasurer paid Water Department notes 
amounting to $1,000.00 and interest $192.50, this leaves three 
notes for $1,000.00 each still due on the purchase of the plant 
from the Medfield Water Co.

SEWER DEPARTMENT 



Sanitary Sewers 

In February, 1930, we cleared out a stoppage in sewer in the 
street which connects Mitchell and Cottage Streets — tree roots 
again. 

Early in December the sewers in Miller and North Streets 
had to be cleared out. In Miller Street it backed up into the 
cellars, in North Street we found the trouble when making a 
general inspection of the trunk lines. 

Sewer Beds 

The amount of sewerage going to the beds during the summer 
and fall months decreased somewhat on account of the straw 
factory closing and also due to the very long dry season, when 
there was no ground water to speak of entering the leaky joints. 

Surface of the beds baked harder than the average, last 
season, requiring more working to keep the surface porous 
enough to absorb the sewerage readily. On account of this 
extra work, the small balance left late in the season, did not 
permit hauling any sand or gravel to the low parts of the beds, 
which we try to do whenever possible. 
We need an appropriation of $1000.00 for the coming season.

LIBRARY REPORT 



To the Board of Selectmen, the Trustees of the Memorial Public 
Library respectfully submit the following report for the year 1930: 

Alfred Pederson is the new member of the Board and the or- 
ganization remains as in the past years with Mr. Crocker, chair- 
man and Mrs. Nellie T. Keyou, secretary. 

The Librarian, Mrs. Emery, has been granted leave of ab- 
sence for the winter months, and Miss Petrie the assistant, with 
Miss Helen MacDonald, a former teacher in the Ralph Wheelock 
School, as substitute, are in charge during her absence. 

During the year, 240 new books have been purchased, and a 
fine set of " America" in twelve volumes has been presented by 
Mr. George B. Dabney, in memory of the Heroes of the World 
War. " Pathway of the Puritans" a Tercentenary book, in 
fine binding has been presented by the Commonwealth of 
Massachusetts. We are also indebted to Mrs. Wheelwright 
for an Encyclopedia of Textiles, in seven volumes, and to Mrs. 
Danielson and Mrs. Chandler for five books of fiction. To 
these donors, we wish to express our thanks. 

Of the books bought and donated during the year, 68 are 
non-fiction, 123 fiction and 74 juvenile. 

The circulation exclusive of magazines is 13,791. Adult, 
10,132, non-fiction, 1981 and juvenile, 3659. 

$80.08 has been turned over to the Town Treasurer for 
fines collected, and discarded books that have been sold. 

The Trustees recommend that the appropriation for the up- 
keep of the Library for 1931 be $2000.00 including the dog tax, 
and that a special appropriation of $150.00 be granted to paint 
the outside of the building. 

NELLIE T. KEYOU; 
Secretary.

REPORT OF SCHOOL COMMITTEE 



To the Citizens of Medfield: 

The School Committee meet at 3 o'clock on the first Tuesday 
of each month of the school year. Parents and citizens who wish 
to confer on any school matter or pupil's problems are invited 
to meet the committee at any of their meetings. 

On October 24, 1930, Mrs. Susan M. Clark died after a short 
illness. She was a member of the school department as a 
teacher and member of the school committee for over twenty- 
six years, and during all that time she was faithful to the duties 
of the department. 

Mrs. Evelyn Byng was appointed to fill her place. 

During the year, there have been several changes in the 
teaching personnel of the schools. At the High School, Miss 
Titus resigned, and her place was filled by Miss Anna Regish. 
In October, Mr. Palumbo resigned to take a teaching position 
in the Boston Trade School. His place was filled by Mrs. 
Theresa MacMurray. Miss Estelle Harlow was obtained to 
teach part time in the seventh grade and part time in the sixth 
grade. 

In the Ralph Wheelock School, Miss Foye resigned and Miss 
C. Louise Barber took her place. 

Miss Helen McDonald's place was filled by Miss Grace 
Oliver. In November, Miss Ruth Sauer resigned to be married, 
and Miss Anna Daddario came to teach the second grade. 

The School Committee wishes to thank Mr. Oliver J. Clark 
for the gift of the picture, " Franklin at the Court of France." 
This picture belonged to Mrs. Susan M. Clark and was given 
in memory of her and can be seen at the High School. 

We have been able to do some work at both schools. At the 
High School, a closet for the folding chairs and various things 
of the janitor was built. Metal closets were put in, in the Com- 
mercial Room, and blowers for the boiler were installed; this 
will save about $4.00 a ton on coal. 



145 

In the seventh grade, one row of seven new chairs and desks 
were added to accommodate a large class. Twelve new chairs 
have replaced the old ones in the typewriting room. The latter 
have been repaired and are in use at the Ralph Wheelock 
School. A good, used piano which could be purchased ad- 
vantageously was placed in the High School and the player 
piano there transferred to the Ralph Wheelock School. 

There was added some much needed scientific apparatus, 
also. 

Five old typewriters were exchanged for five new ones. 

There was a large number of new text books purchased for 
use in both schools. 

At the Ralph Wheelock School, a wire fence was erected on 
the line between the school lot and that of Mr. William Kelly. 
Two cement walks were built from the school to Pleasant Street 
and Miller Street. 

The lunch room has been utilized for a drawing room, and a 
heating and ventilating unit installed. A metal closet was put 
in, in the office. We have purchased more supplies than usual 
as they had dropped in price. They were the type which are 
used daily. 

It has been voted that minimum age of admission to Grade I 
of the Medfield Schools remain five years and six months on 
September 1st of year of entering with the exception that an 
applicant who lacks not over one month of that age be referred 
to the Superintendent of Schools. Such child may be admitted 
at his discretion after due consideration of the child's physical 
and mental fitness (by intelligence examination) and available 
school accommodations. A birth certificate is required of every 
pupil upon entrance. 

We departed from the usual custom when obtaining new 
teachers of hiring all just out of school or college, by appointing 
two who had previous teaching experience in the elementary 
department and one in the high school, and we feel that it has 
been money well expended. 

We have tried to give the scholars the best that a small town 
could afford and feel that it is up to them to do their part. 

The school committee, in closing, feels they have conscien- 



146 

tiously done their duty, being ably supported by the Super- 
intendent, Mr. Allen, the various supervisors, principals, and 
the teachers, and not omitting the last but not least, the jani- 
tors. In another place, you will find the reports of the others 
of the Department. 

For school expenses for the coming year we ask for $32,500. 

It may be of interest to note that the total cost per pupil for 
the support of all our schools, from State and local sources was 
91% of the average cost throughout the State, or $91.14. The 
net cost paid from local taxation was 80% — $74.51 as against 
an average of $90.10. These figures, for the school year 1929-30 
are taken from the State report.

REPORT OF SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS 



To the School Committee of Medfield: 

It is my privilege to make my second report to you and 
through you to the citizens of Medfield. 

In October Medfield suffered a loss in the passing of Mrs. 
Susan M. Clark, for fourteen years a member of this School 
Committee and for over thirty years directly associated with 
the schools of the town. This service, coming as it did after 
years of educational and teaching experience elsewhere, con- 
stitutes a record noteworthy in the annals of the State. Her 
wide range of experience, long knowledge of the schools of this 
community, mature and sound judgment, ever fresh and en- 
thusiastic attitude toward progress in education, and personal 
interest in every pupil and teacher were sources of unique 
power and influence which will long be missed. To fill the 
vacancy thus created until the next regular election, Mrs. 
Evelyn Byng was duly appointed, in November. She has 
undertaken the work with sympathy and enthusiasm. 

We have had, as must be expected, interruptions in the per- 
sonnel of the teaching force. One teacher, Miss Macdonald, 
retired after several years of faithful service. Miss Ruth 
Sauer left us to be married. Mr. Palumbo, Miss Titus, and 
Miss Foye, after terms of varying length, resigned for places of 
larger salary and opportunity. We are fortunate in their 
successors, who have assumed their work with intelligence and 
vigor. All were well prepared, two were experienced in other 
localities; and we were particularly happy that Mrs. McMurray 
was able to return to the High School when the interruption 
there came in the midst of the term. She returns with the full 
confidence and esteem of pupils and community. Miss Regish 
in the Commercial Department, Miss Oliver in Grade V, Miss 
Barber in III, and Miss Daddario in II have quickly made their 
places and are doing strong work. Nevertheless, there is 



152 

usually a temporary loss when a tried and experienced teacher 
leaves and one new to the situation if not to the profession, 
takes her place. Of course Medfield cannot compete with the 
wealthier cities; equally of course there is good stimulus when 
members of a teaching corps realize that growth into larger 
spheres is open and is encouraged. There is also helpful stimu- 
lus with the coming of new, enthusiastic teachers, eager to 
make their places. But a measure of permanence is valuable 
and it is worth while to continue offering added inducements 
to remain here and grow in efficiency. Another very helpful 
step has been the addition of an experienced teacher, Miss 
Harlow, to carry work in both Junior high school and sixth 
grade, thus serving to " bridge the gap" and to relieve the 
principal of the elementary school for more supervision. 

Our Census, Age-grade, and Attendance tables, given here- 
with, show practically no gain or loss in numbers of pupils. 
Our percentage of attendance has not shown the improvement 
over last year which was hoped and which should be possible 
with the town's liberality in transportation of pupils. 

While there has been distinct improvement in our schools in 
nearly all lines I still feel there is not yet a sufficiently strong 
businesslike attitude in the High School and that the remedy 
lies principally in the home. Too few pupils take the personal 
responsibility for their own progress that they would do if their 
homes individually paid for them the actual tuition cost which 
the town pays. Outside interests, particularly those which 
use evenings other than Friday or Saturday, should not take 
the time or absorb the attention and initiative and interest of 
the pupils. The one-session plan was originally adopted largely 
to give the long afternoon and evening so there might be serious, 
effective study, without interference with healthful exercise 
and rest. The School cannot put the pupil into College; he 
must put himself. The Home and the School can furnish 
opportunity and stimulus and guidance. Such investigations 
as we have made indicate that the average time of serious home 
study is disappointingly low. Will each home co-operate with 
us? 

There have been many improvements in physical equipment 



153 

during the past year, described more fully elsewhere. At the 
Ralph Wheelock school a woven- wire boundary fence, cement 
walks, and cinder filling where the town's sidewalk-grading 
left the playground low and wet have increased safety and 
healthfulness. The building is now easily approachable from 
both sides in all weathers. Installation of blower fans for the 
boilers at the High School now permits burning buckwheat 
(hard) coal. This is accomplishing what we have seen it do 
elsewhere — give better-controlled heat at reduced cost, at the 
same time being cleaner for our building and our neighborhood. 
If it fulfills the present expectation it should be installed at the 
Ralph Wheelock school next summer. 

One of the serious limitations of the High School building has 
been remedied in the best way apparent by fitting-up the 
lunch room at the Wheelock building for a Drawing Room. 
While it is inconvenient to High School pupils to walk one way 
or the round-trip between the two schools, the benefit in real 
interest and serious work accomplished more than compensates. 
A moderate supply of drawing instruments is helping Mechani- 
cal Drawing and Mrs. Judd now gives us two days a week. 
Careful reading of her enthusiastic report is suggested. We 
are still handicapped by the lack of a gymnasium, for health 
and physical training, for development of the best team work 
in athletic sports, with its incident school loyalty and interest 
and co-operative leadership, and for use in social gatherings 
of various sorts. We as yet can see no way to overcome this 
handicap. 

A serious problem in which we hope to make distinct progress 
during the coming year is that of promotion and grading. Our 
Age-grade table indicates that one-sixth of our pupils are re- 
tarded one or more years. There is a range of five, or even six, 
years in the ages of pupils in single grades. Study is being 
given this situation in the hope of meeting more nearly the 
needs of individual pupils. For each pupil of every grade the 
school should be his place of business, wherein he is happily 
and absorbingly employed in what he can do increasingly well. 

Medfield may well take special pride in its High School grad- 
uation of last June, as interestingly reported elsewhere by the 



154 

Principal. It was distinctly appropriate to Medfield — one of 
the Bay State's historic towns — as part of its celebration of her 
Tercentenary year. It is a pity we have no moving-picture 
record of this beautiful and meaningful pageant. 

In closing let me thank your Committee, the teachers, jani- 
tors, and all school workers for their cordial support and faith- 
ful endeavor. It augurs well for increased accomplishment to 
come. 

Respectfully submitted, 

LYMAN R. ALLEN, 

Superintendent. 



155 



REPORT OF HIGH SCHOOL PRINCIPAL 



January 15, 1931. 
Mr. Lyman R. Allen, Superintendent of Schools, 
Sir:— 

I herewith submit my report as principal of the Medfield 
High School for the year 1930. 

Graduation Exercises 

As 1930 marked the three hundredth anniversary of the 
founding of Massachusetts Bay Colony, of which Medfield was 
a part, it seemed very pertinent to make the graduation exercises 
historical in character, particularly as no other observance of 
the occasion had been planned by the town. It was finally 
decided to prepare and present a historical pageant of the early 
history of the town. Much time and thought were put into 
this by the class, the teachers, and the other pupils in school 
who took part. Using as a basis a pageant published by the 
State Department of Education, the Seniors, as a part of the 
regular English class work changed certain sections to apply to 
local conditions and wrote in entirely new parts where the 
original could not apply. The pageant was presented in a 
prolog and seven episodes. Of these, episodes three, five, and 
six were written entirely by the class. The prolog with the 
connecting links between the episodes, and episodes one, four, 
and seven were changed considerably to fit local conditions. 
Between the episodes appropriate musical numbers were in- 
troduced as solos, orchestral numbers, or vocal choruses. All 
participants were dressed in appropriate costume. 

The cost of costuming the pageant was considerable and 
would have been prohibitive if we had had to hire all the cos- 
tumes used. The class spent twenty-five dollars for costumes

instead of presenting a gift to the school, feeling that in giving 
a performance of this calibre as their contribution to the ter- 
centenary year they were doing something just as valuable as 
the gift of a picture or anything of that sort would be. Many 
of the costumes were made by the pupils or their parents, and 
many were loaned by townspeople. We are much indebted to 
Mr. Ware for the loan of stage properties, etc., suitable to the 
periods represented, and also to the Norwood Junior High 
School for the loan of costume material. The entire student 
body entered into the spirit of the occasion in a highly com- 
mendable manner. Of the 140 pupils in school at the time 
about 65 took active parts in the pageant. A complete pro- 
gram will be found at the end of this report. 

Although no members of the Class of 1930 have gone to 
college, five of the twelve are continuing their education at 
business schools or private academies. 

Enrollment 

There was an increase of sixteen in enrollment in September 
of this year over that of the same month last year, making a 
total of 161 pupils. Since then three pupils have moved from 
town making the present enrollment 158. This increase is 
due to an entering grade of forty pupils as against a loss of only 
twelve by graduation. The average graduating class for 
several years previous to 1930 was 17. This year (1931) there 
should be 22 graduates. Conditions now indicate that the 
present enrollment of between 155 and 160 will remain fairly 
constant for the next two years and will then increase to 170 
or so due to a large grade which should enter in 1933. 

The si^e of the seventh grade this September has caused 
temporarily crowded conditions in one room. Although the 
building is large enough to accommodate up to two hundred 
pupils, the largest number of seats and desks in any one room 
was thirty-five and a class of over that number in any subject 
could not be accommodated except through the use of tablet 
arm chairs. The type of work that must be done in the seventh 
grade can not be done properly on these tablet arms and desks 
are essential. Through a slight change in the seating arrange- 



157 

ment of the seventh grade room an additional row of seats was 
placed during the last vacation period and this room will now 
seat up to 45 pupils. 

Drawing Classes 

The removal of the drawing classes to the Ralph Wheelock 
building will prove to be of great value, especially to the ad- 
vanced pupils. Arrangements for drawing at the high school 
building were never satisfactory. During the periods that the 
drawing classes met it was necessary to double up in other rooms 
in order to release a room for these classes. There was no 
chance in the room for the storing of material or for keeping 
pupils' work from week to week. Any painting or other work 
that needed to dry after the period was finished had to be left 
on the window sills or chalk tray. There was an interval of 
only one minute between the end of the drawing class and the 
beginning of the next recitation when an entirely different 
group had to use the room. This made the cleaning up of the 
drawing work difficult to handle and any work left to dry as 
mentioned above was in the way of the incoming classes. With 
a room devoted only to drawing, all of this inconvenience has 
been done away with and the pupils are more careful of their 
work and more interested in it. At present only those who are 
really interested in the subject and can really profit by taking 
it, are in the drawing classes. The few who thought that the 
trip between the two buildings would be an enjoyable recess 
and elected drawing on that account were eliminated early in 
the fall. The trip between the two buildings may seem some- 
what of a hardship, especially to the younger pupils, and may 
seem to be an unnecessary waste of time. But the periods 
have been so arranged that the time for returning to the high 
school for one class comes during recess, while another class is 
dismissed from school immediately from drawing. Time for 
passing for the seventh and eighth grades is taken out of a spare 
period. On days that the weather is too severe arrangements 
have been made to omit the drawing classes for the junior high 
groups. With drawing given to senior high school pupils two 
periods a week instead of one as formerly, regular credit towards 



158 

graduation can be given for this subject. The results in the 
personnel of the group and in the improved type of work fully 
justify the change. 

Athletics 

Miss Regish has taken over the work with the girls formerly 
carried on by Miss Titus and Mr. Hartford has taken over Mr. 
Palumbo's work with the boys. During the fall the girls played 
an inter class series of fieldball and basket ball games. A school 
team has been organized in girls' basket ball but because of the 
necessity for practising out of doors we have been handicapped 
considerably by weather conditions. It is practically impos- 
sible to win any games with a team that can not practise and 
must play all its games away from home. The girls deserve 
a great deal of credit for the spirit which they show in trying 
to play at all under such conditions. Newcomb is being 
played as an organized indoor game for the winter season. 
During the spring, track practise will be carried on. 

Last June a tennis tournament open to all the pupils in high 
school was held in which twenty-six entrants participated. The 
winner, Gordon Hardie, Class of 1933, was presented with a 
silver cup furnished by the school athletic association. A 
similar tournament is planned for the coming spring. 

The baseball team coached by Mr. Umberto Palumbo last 
spring had a fairly successful season. In football this fall we 
again had the services of Mr. William Palumbo as coach. 
Thanks to his willingness to give his time and the generosity 
of several of the townspeople who subscribed money for the 
purchase of equipment, we developed the most successful team 
we have had for years. Out of eleven games played we won 
four, tied three, and lost four. An ice hockey team has been 
organized for the winter, which at time of writing had won one 
game and lost one. Baseball will be played in the spring, 
Medfield High remaining a member of the Tri-County League 
as in the past. 

Assemblies 

. A regular schedule of assembly periods for the present school 
year has been arranged by a committee of the School Executive 



159 

Council. During the fall we had an original play written and 
presented by the Freshman Class; a Thanksgiving play by the 
seventh grade; a dramatized version of Dickens' "A Christmas 
Carol" by grade eight; an illustrated lecture on the winter 
birds of Massachusetts by the field agent of the Massachusetts 
Audubon Society; and four illustrated scientific lectures. For 
the remainder of the year three debates, two outside speakers, 
and three class programs are planned. These assemblies are 
an integral part of school work at the present time and bring 
matter of great educational value into the school from outside 
as well as developing initiative, responsibility, and poise in 
those pupils who plan and take part in class assemblies. 

The Superintendent and Committee have been very generous 
this year in providing us with books and supplies which we ap- 
preciate very much. The new maps, scientific apparatus, 
textbooks, and typewriter chairs just purchased will greatly 
increase the efficiency of the school. Much of this material 
had been needed for a long time. In closing I wish to thank 
you and the Committee for the assistance given throughout 
the year. 

Respectfully submitted, 

ALTON H. HARTFORD, 

Principal.

REPORT OF SUPERVISOR OF DRAWING 



Mr. Lyman R. Allen, 

Superintendent of Schools, 
Medfield, Massachusetts. 

Dear Sir: 

I herewith submit my annual report, as Drawing Supervisor 
in the town of Medfield. 

My aim, as usual, for all the work is to have each child love 
to draw and dare to draw anything at any time. 

Towards this somewhat optimistic ideal, certain improve- 
ments stand out during the past year in the grades. 

1. There is a quicker response from all the classes when 
problems are assigned. 

2. More originality and better technique are noticeable in 
Free Expression problems; the lettering shows more careful 
workmanship. 

3. Work is generally completed at the close of each period. 
The teachers deserve much of the credit for this improvement, 

which is partly due to their careful planning and conscientious 
attention in following the monthly outlines. 

The High School Classes, for the first time in years, are hav- 
ing a real opportunity to produce art work comparable with 
advanced work in neighboring towns. It is to be regretted 
that a suitable room is not available in the High School build- 
ing, but any inconvenience caused by the walk to and from 
classes is more than justified by the results. We certainly 
appreciate the large, convenient room we now have. Every- 
one has an enjoyable time while there; supplies can be properly 
taken care of; and we do not interfere with the general High 
School routine. 

The new class in Mechanical Drawing is progressing rapidly 
and shows great enthusiasm for the work. 



161 

Parents who are considering the advisability of sending their 
children to Art or Technical schools, or those who question the 
wisdom of moving the drawing classes to this building, are 
especially welcome to observe these classes at any time. 

Of course, the great need at present is more manual work 
for both girls and boys of the 5th and 6th grade. Many chil- 
dren who are poor students in other branches show decided 
skill in sewing, cooking, carpenter work, mechanical construc- 
tion or bench work of any kind. Sometimes success in these 
problems reacts favorably upon the other subjects, as the child 
gains confidence in his own ability. 

We now have some coping saws and other small tools for light 
wood construction problems, and a few boys are to have the 
privilege of working with them. If this class is successful, it 
may be possible to give the girls some extra work of this sort. 

The Superintendent and School Committee have spent a 
great deal of time considering the Drawing situation this year, 
and the teachers and children join me in thanks for the fine 
equipment, the improved working conditions, and above all, 
the extra day. 

It is now a great pleasure to teach art in Medfield. 

Respectfully submitted, 

EVELYN H. JUDD, 

Supervisor of Drawing.

REPORT OF SUPERVISOR OF MUSIC 



Mr. L. R. Allen, 

Superintendent of Schools, 
Dear Sir : 

I present a short report on music in the schools of Medfield. 

Music contributes to the general aims of education. 

Some of these are — good health, ability to carry on everyday 
activities of life, good citizenship, character, right use of leisure 
time and a worthwhile part in home life. 

It is healthy to sing. Good posture and deep breathing are 
necessary. 

Any subject, which results in rapidity and accuracy of 
thought, will increase the ability to carry on the activities of 
life. Music is one of these subjects. 

Patriotic songs, folk songs and national songs are valuable 
in the development of good citizenship. 

Music has its part in building character. It excels all other 
endeavors in use of leisure time and is a pleasure, pastime and 
strong support in the home. 

The singing of many good songs, cultivation of light voices, 
excellent work in the various problems in music through the 
grades, ability in part singing, all make for good music in the 
Junior High School. 

Here the process of socializing students can be carried on 
to the best advantage. 

Large numbers of boys and girls of the same ages and interests 
are gathered together. 

In the singing of a chorus or the playing of an orchestra, the 
necessity of working for group effect is plain. 

If there is opportunity for singing, music appreciation and 
instrumental music the department of music in a Junior High 



163 

School spreads its instruction as widely as many of the other 
necessary subjects of the school. 

On the work of the Junior High School depends the music 
of the Senior High School. 

Respectfully submitted, 

NETTIE F. HAMANT, 

Supervisor of Music. 
Medfield, January 19, 1931. 



164 



PHYSICIANS REPORT 



In the beginning of the year, each child was examined and 
defects noted and reports sent to the parents. 

In the spring term, there was diphtheria in one family; three 
children having it; one being of school age. There were no 
other cases. However, there were several cases of whooping 
cough, chicken pox and measles. 

In the fall term, there were no contagious diseases. 

You will find a more detailed report from the school nurse. 

F. H. CLOUGH, M. D.

REPORT OF SCHOOL NURSE 



To the Superintendent of School of Medfield. 

Dear Sir: 

I hereby submit my annual report for the town of Medfield. 
The aims of health education in the schools of Medfield may 
be briefly stated as follows : 

1. To instruct children and youth so that they may conserve 
and improve their own health habits. 

2. To establish in them habits and principles of living which, 
throughout their school life and in later years, will assure that 
abundant vigor and vitality which provides the basis for the 
greatest possible happiness and service in personal, family, and 
community life. 

3. To influence parents and other adults through the health- 
education program for children to better habits and attitudes, 
so that the school may become an effective agency for the pro- 
motion of the social aspects of health education in the family 
and community as well as in the school itself. 

4. To improve the individual and community life of the 
future; to insure a healthier and fitter nation and race. 

This program has been followed this past year by these 
means : 

1. The teachers have efficiently co-operated with the school 
physician and school nurse to bring about better health condi- 
tions among their pupils by the correlation of health studies 
with other lessons. 

2. The drawing supervisor has co-operated by the making 
of health posters which are very attractive and instructive. 

3. Our school janitors have aided us in our health program 
by their constant efforts to keep our schools clean and properly 
heated. 



166 

The school nurse's duties have been as follows : 

1. Assisting the school physician at his annual health ex- 
amination, recording defects and notifying parents of same. 

2. Weekly class room inspections: health talks. 

3. Periodical weighing and measuring of children. 

4. Home visits when necessary. 

5. Assisting the examining physician at the pre-school clinic. 

6. Supervision of the Dental Clinic. 

The health of our school children has been excellent. Last 
winter several severe colds were reported, together with cases 
of whooping cough. By the Board of Health records, only the 
following communicable diseases were reported among school 
children : 

Whooping Cough 8 

Diphtheria 1 

German Measles 2 

To control communicable diseases, it is necessary to take 
measures to prevent the spread of infection, to reduce the likeli- 
hood of exposure to infectious diseases and to extend the pro- 
tection by means' of immunization, particularly in childhood. 

The parents of Medfield are co-operating with us in this 
program by their careful observance of quarantine rules, also 
by their interest in our pre-school clinic. The object of the 
latter is to give each child who is to enter school in September, 
a thorough physical examination, also to give this child Toxin- 
anti-toxin for the prevention of diphtheria. Parents are 
notified of defects and urged to have them corrected before the 
child enters school in September. Every child has the right 
to enter school physically fit. 

Report of pre-school clinic, Dr. Park, examining physician. 
24 pre-school children examined. 
27 children who had Toxin-anti-toxin. 
12 recommended for removal of tonsils and adenoids. 
4 children having defective teeth. 
The nutrition of our children has improved. As this is closely 
related to good health, simple nutritional rules have to be 
habitually observed. These are taught during my health talks 
and by the teachers. One of our underweight pupils spent 



167 



eight weeks at the Norfolk County Health Camp at Braintree. 
As a result, he gained fifteen pounds. This camp is financed 
through the Christmas Seal Sales. 

The re-examination clinics were held under the supervision 
of the State Department of Public Health in October and 
November. The results are as follows : 

Total number examined 10 

Total number X-rayed 10 

Total number improved 10 

Recommended for removal of tonsils and adenoids 2 

Recommended for dentistry 1 

Dental Clinic 

The Dental Clinic is sponsored by the local Red Cross 
chapter with contribution from the Visiting Nurse Association, 
The American Legion, and the American Legion Auxiliary. 
Dr. Carroll of Whitinsville conducts this clinic one-half day 
each week. Pupils of the Ralph Wheelock School are eligible 
to this clinic. 

This work is becoming a very important part of our health 
education work. It is our aim to teach the children that proper 
nutrition, good digestion, sunshine, exercise, rest, and regular 
visits to the dentist (at least twice a year) all promote the 
health of its body and parts. If pupils and parents can be made 
to realize these facts and come to understand that mouth hy- 
giene is more than brushing of teeth and occasional visits to 
the dentist a valuable lesson is taught. 

Report of Dental Clinic : 

Total enrollment 93 

Total number of clinics 32 

Total number of patients 281 

Total number of fillings 258 

Total number of cleansing 35 

Total number of extractions 193 

May Day was observed and each year the children are be- 
coming more interested in a 100% Child Health Day. 



168 

I have attended all the health meetings held under the State 
Department of Public Health. 

I want to thank the parents and teachers for their cooperation 
in all our school health activities. 

Respectfully submitted, 

MARTHA E. BLOOD, R. N., 

School Nurse.

REPORT OF THE INSPECTOR OF ANIMALS 

January 1, 1932. 
To the Selectmen of Medfield: 
Gentlemen: 

I hereby submit to you my report for the past year. 

About November 15, 1930, I received orders from the Di- 
rector of the Division of Animal Industry, State House, Bos- 
ton, Mass., to make the annual complete census and inspec- 
tion of all cattle, sheep, swine, and goats, kept in this town, 
this inspection to be completed not later than February 1, 
1931. During this examination, I visited 32 stables, in which 
were kept 277 cattle, 324 swine, no sheep, and 1 goat. The 
animals appeared healthy physically, and most of the stables 
were kept clean. At that time, of the 277 cattle examined, 
215 were Supervision tested. 

In the latter part of May, 1931, I took out a petition to be 
signed by the cattle owners of this town, to have all cattle 
tested under State and Federal Supervision. All owners signed 
this petition except one who was away. Medfield's first com- 
plete test came September 28 and 29, 1931. Seventy-nine an- 
imals were tested at this time, and only six reacted, these 
reacting cattle were appraised and later sold for slaughter 
and their stables cleaned and disinfected. This makes all 
cattle in this town under State and Federal Supervision. 

On February 5, 1931, nineteen cattle arrived from Maine 
and on August 12, 1931, 8 cattle arrived from Maine. On 
September 5, 1931, 2 cattle arrived from Vermont. These cat- 
tle were examined in the usual manner and released. 

During the past year, four persons were bitten by four dif- 
ferent dogs, these dogs were all quarantined for a period of 
14 days at which time showed no signs of disease and were 
released. 

Very truly yours, 

GEORGE S. CHENEY, 

Inspector of Animals,

REPORT OF THE CEMETERY COMMISSIONERS 



To the Board of Selectmen: 

Work was carried on in the cemetery as usual during the 
year. 

Owing to the very wet weather, we had to do more mowing 
than usual. 

Water pipes were laid and faucets installed. Due to the 
fact that Avenues in Section D are not laid out, water pipes 
were not installed in this section. The pipes and faucets for 
this section have been purchased and we are desirous of being 
able to lay out the Avenues and install water so that we will 
have new lots available. 

The interest on the Trust Funds was reduced in 1931, and 
we therefore recommend an appropriation of $2,500.00. 

Yours truly, 

JOSEPH A. ROBERTS, 
JOHN R. MILLER, 
PETER PEDERZINI, 

Cemetery Commissioners.

REPORT OF THE WATER AND SEWERAGE BOARD 



Water Department 

The past year was a rather queer one on account of the 
many chances there were bound to be of interference with the 
old system while installing the new one. While perhaps the 
greater part of the interference is over, yet there is a good 
chance of more before the spring. Miller and Oak Street 
mains are laid and the old services connected to them. 

The only very serious break in the old mains happened in 
September when a bad leak showed up from the old six inch 
wrought iron main under the water tank at the pump house, 
where we found the W. I. pipe and the C. I. fittings were 
very badly corroded, and the pipe so thin in the threads that 
one joint had cracked for a third of the distance around the 
pipe, making a bad leak. In order to repair the leak, we had 
to drain the tank and pump directly into the mains for 85 
hours, and waste the surplus water through the pump relief 
valve. Cost of this job was $349.79. 

During the year 1931, we renewed the service pipes into 
three houses and installed one new service. 

On account of the uncertainty as to just how long it will 
be before the old system will be out of commission, it is very 
difficult to make up a budget for 1932, and we recommend an 
appropriation of $2,700.00 for the Water Department.

SEWER DEPARTMENT 

Sanitary Sewers 



In March, 1931, we cleaned the main sewer in the street 
that runs from Mitchell Street to Cottage Street. Tree roots 
as usual. 

During the installation of the gas mains, the construction 
man broke into the particular sewers from four or five houses, 
but made the necessary repairs themselves. 

Twice we have had to flush out the upper end of the Green 
Street sewer, also the Adams Street sewer at the end of Cot- 
tage Street. Did not find tree roots in either sewer. This 
flushing can be done much more easily and thoroughly when- 
ever the hydrants become available. 

After a great deal of hard and expensive work, we got rid 
of the worst effects of the oil on the sewer beds, but neces- 
sarily had to take a lot of the gravel surface of the beds also, 
which was a bad feature. We hoped to have a small balance 
left towards the end of the season, with which we could re- 
place some of the gravel removed, but did not have it, so have 
Heft that feature over for the coming season. 

We therefore ask for an appropriation of $1,000.00 for the 
year 1932.

LIBRARY REPORT 



To the Board of Selectmen, the Trustees of the Memorial 
Public Library respectfully submit the folloiving report for the 
year 1931: 

Miss Margaret Place is the new member of the board. Due 
to the absence of Mr. Crocker, Dr. Clough was elected Chair- 
man, pro tern, while Miss Donlan was elected Secretary of the 
organization. 

Mrs. Emery's leave of absence extended to July 1, 1931, 
and the work was efficiently carried on by her substitute, Miss 
Helen MacDonald, former teacher in the Ralph Wheelock 
School, and Miss Petrie, assistant librarian. 

During the year the following books were purchased: Fic- 
tion 90; Non-fiction 52; Juveniles 54; making a total of 196 
books. Magazines, to the amount of $50.00 were also pur- 
chased. Due to the release of plaster in the librarian's office, 
our purchasing power was diminished by a considerable 
amount. 

To Mrs. Wheelwright, Mrs. Danielson, and Mrs. C. F. Clark, 
we are indebted for the gift of 11 books. We thank these 
ladies and wish our list of donors might be larger. 

By comparing the following figures with those of the pre- 
ceding years, you will note the decided increase in circulation; 

Circulation, (exclusive of magazines) 15,426 
Adult 11,176 

Juvenile 4,250 

Non-fiction 2,653 

$86.63 has been turned over to the Town Treasurer for fines 
collected. 

The outside of the library was painted, as per appropriation. 

The trustees recommend that the appropriation for the up- 
keep of the library shall be $2,000.00, including the Dog Tax. 

92 



In conclusion, the Librarian and the Trustees are anxious 
to cooperate with students and teachers of the public schools, 
and they will welcome any suggestions for helpful reference 
material. 

Respectfully submitted, 

ANNE C. DONLAN, 

Secretary.

THE COMMONWEALTH OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Department of Corporations and Taxation 

Division of Accounts 

State House, Boston 

September 10, 1931. 
To the Board of Selectmen, 

Mr. Frank G. Haley, Chairman, 
Medfield, Massachusetts. 
Gentlemen: 

I submit herewith my report of an audit of the books and 
accounts of the town of Medfield for the period from January 
1, 1930, to July 7, 1931, made in accordance with the provi- 
sions of Chapter 44 of the General Laws. This report is in 
the form of a report made to me by Mr. Edward H. Fenton, 
Chief Accountant of this Division. 

Very truly yours, 

THEODORE N. WADDELL, 

Director of Accounts.

AUDIT OF THE BOOKS AND ACCOUNTS 



Mr. Theodore N. Waddell, Director of Accounts, 

Department of Corporations and Taxation, 
State House, Boston. 
Sir: 

In accordance with your instructions, I have made an audit 
of the books and accounts of the Town of Medfield for the 
period from January 1, 1930, to July 7, 1931, and submit the 
.following report thereon: 

The financial transactions of the town, as recorded in the 
books of the several departments receiving or disbursing 
money for the town, were examined and checked with the 
books of the Town Accountant. 

The books and accounts of the Town Accountant were ex- 
amined and checked with the Treasurer's books and with the 
records in the several departments collecting money for the 
town. 

The appropriations and transfers, as entered in the ledger, 
were checked to the Town Clerk's records of appropriations 
and transfers authorized by the town. 

The receipts as shown on the Accountant's books were 
checked with the records of the Treasurer, and the payments 
were compared with the warrants authorizing the Treasurer 
to disburse town funds. 

In checking vouchers and pay-rolls to the Treasurer's war- 
rants, it was found that police uniforms had been purchased 
and charged to the appropriation for the police department. 
Such expenditures should not be made until the town votes to 
accept Section 6B, Chapter 40, General Laws, inserted by 
Chapter 351, Acts of 1930. 

The classification book was examined and checked with the 
ledger accounts. 

132 



The computation of the tax rate by the Assessors was 
checked and it was noted that the amount of estimated re- 
ceipts used by the Board of Assessors in determining the 
tax rate for 1930 proved to be $5,404.67 in excess of the 
amount actually collected for such purposes during the year. 
Great caution should be exercised in this respect, for a defi- 
cit in the estimated receipts account may impair the finan- 
cial condition of the town. 

The books and accounts of the Town Treasurer were ex- 
amined and checked. The recorded receipts were analyzed 
and compared with the records in the several departments col- 
lecting money for the town and with the other sources from 
which money was paid into the town /treasury. The cash in the 
office was verified by an actual count and the cash balances 
were reconciled with statements furnished by the banks in 
which town funds are deposited. 

The town debt, revenue loans, and interest were verified, 
and the payments were checked with the amounts falling due 
and with the cancelled securities and coupons on file. 

The securities and savings bank books representing the in- 
vestments of the various trust funds in the custody of the 
Treasurer and the Selectmen were examined and listed. The 
income was proved and the withdrawals were checked with 
the receipts as shown in the Treasurer's cash book. 

The principal of the library trust funds was originally 
$8,000, but owing to losses on investments made by Boston 
banks, which administered the funds for several years prior 
to 1930, the balance on December 31, 1930, amounted to only 
$7,376.83. This balance was increased during the current 
year until, on July 7, 1931, it amounted to $7,745.64. No 
further withdrawals should be made from this fund until the 
principal is restored to the amount originally bequeathed to 
the town. 

The books and accounts of the Collector of Taxes were 
examined and checked in detail. The commitment books 
were footed, the abatements were checked to the Assessors' 



133 



records of abatements granted, and the payments to the 
Treasurer were checked to the Treasurer's cash book. 

The outstanding accounts were listed and proved to the 
Accountant's ledger. Verification notices were mailed to a 
number of persons whose names appeared on the books as 
owing money to the town, the replies thereto indicating that 
the accounts, as listed, are correct. 

The records of town, sporting, and dog licenses issued by 
the Town Clerk were examined, and the payments to the 
town, to the Division of Fisheries and Game, and to the 
County, respectively, were verified. 

In addition to the departments mentioned above, the finan- 
cial records of all other departments receiving money for the 
town or committing bills for collection were examined and 
reconciled with the books in the Treasurer's office. 

No records of financial transactions are kept by the Board 
of Health, and it was found that the chairman of the board, 
who issues the alcohol licenses, had not deposited with the 
Town Treasurer the amounts received for such licenses during 
1930 and 1931. Attention is invited to Section 53, Chapter 
44, General Laws, which provides that departmental receipts 
shall be paid into the town treasury upon their receipt. 

Recommendations were made in the previous audit report 
concerning the water and cemetery accounts. The system of 
bookkeeping in these departments has since been changed 
and the accounts are now kept in an efficient and accurate 
manner. 

It was noted that there were uncollected accounts in the 
cemetery department, representing charges for the annual 
care of lots and graves, which were several years overdue. An 
effort should be made to collect them, but if it is found that 
they are uncollectible, they should be abated by the cemetery 
commissioners — in order to clear the town books of worth- 
less accounts. 



134 



The surety bonds of the Treasurer, Tax Collector, Water 
Collector, and Town Clerk were examined and found to be in 
proper form. 

Appended to this report are tables showing reconciliations 
of the Treasurer's and Collector's cash, summaries of the 
tax, assessment, water, cemetery, and trust fund accounts, to- 
gether with a balance sheet reflecting the financial condition 
of the town as of July 7, 1931. 

For the courtesies extended and the assistance rendered 
by the various town officials during the progress of the audit, 
I wish, on behalf of my assistants and for myself, to express 
appreciation. 

Respectfully submitted, 

EDWARD H. FENTON, 

Chief Accountant.

A REPORT OF THE SCHOOL COMMITTEE 



To the Citizens of Medfield: 

The School Committee continues to meet at 3 o'clock on 
the first Tuesday of each month of the school year, usually 
at the office of the Ralph Wheelock School. Parents and citi- 
zens who wish to confer on any school matter or pupil prob- 
lems are invited to meet the Committee at any of their meet- 
ings. 

During the year there have been four resignations in our 
teaching force. These are mentioned in detail in the Super- 
intendent's report. As required by State law, we have engaged 
an extra teacher commencing January 4, 1932, to assist in the 
first grade and to teach a class of retarded scholars. 

In addition to the usual routine duties there have been sev- 
eral special matters requiring attention, they include the fol- 
lowing : 

1. The tops of desks in the fourth and fifth grades were 
so marred that it was very hard for the pupils to write on 
them. We had them sanded and oiled, thus saving the neces- 
sity of buying new ones. We hope to finish the remaining 
ones in the first, second, and third grades this coming year if 
possible. 

2. We found in the latter part of June that the two large 
ventilation tops on the Wheelock School were corroded and 
some of the supports were so bad that they were broken off 
and so had to be replaced. 

3. At the Pfaff School we had a four-inch water pipe laid 
from the new main into the building, which will give water- 
pressure enough to connect with the fire hose already installed 
but never connected. 

164 



4. During the Christmas vacation a platform was built for 
use in the assembly room of the High School. Since this 
consists of two connecting rooms with large folding doors it 
has always been hard to see or hear assembly exercises; the 
platform has been made removable so that it does not inter- 
fere with other uses of the rooms. 

Four typewriters have been bought in exchange for ma- 
chines in use four years. One of the replaced machines was 
retained for use at the Wheelock School. The sum of $782.14 
has been expended the past year for text books which were 
badly needed. 

For a detailed report of the various departments see the 
reports of those departments. 

We ask for the sum of $32,500 for the year 1932. 

FRANK H. CLOUGH, 
MRS. ALICE W. CONWAY, 
MRS. EVELYN H. BYNG, 

School Committee.

REPORT OF SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS 



To the School Committee of Med field: 

My third report to you is one of encouraging progress in 
many ways, due for the most part to hearty and happy co- 
operation of a loyal group of teachers and to increasing pupil- 
interest in the work. This is notwithstanding changes in 
almost one-third of our full-time teaching force. Miss Mar- 
ion Bagley left us after nearly six years of increasingly ef- 
fective service here; Mr. D. Vincent Kenefick of Norwood, 
a Harvard graduate, took her place. Miss Estelle Lord, af- 
ter two years, and Miss Anna Regish, after one, left our 
Commercial department to accept more attractive teaching 
positions. Mr. George W. Cosgrove and Miss Isabel Chis- 
holm, both graduates of the Salem Normal School, the latter 
with teaching experience, carry on their work well. Miss C. 
Louise Barber resigned from the third grade to be married 
and Miss Lillian Bearse, of the Framingham Normal School, 
is in charge. 

In the High School this employment of two men has proved, 
as anticipated, of great help. Every school system needs the 
influence of both manly men and womanly women. These 
men are strong in the classroom, placing that always first in 
their efforts. At the same time with their hearty and competent 
assistance Mr. Hartford is accomplishing more in sports and 
athletics and consequent school spirit among both boys and 
girls in the school. The Medfield High boys had a fall season 
successful from every point of view and demonstrated that 
they can play football. The Principal's report, herewith in- 
cluded, gives some details of the school's athletic progress. 
Quiet, persistent, skillfull coaching and loyal pulling together 
by the pupils gave increasing confidence and called out more 
general support. Practically without funds except by sub- 
scription and with little opportunity to collect admission fees 
at games, they have been not only self-supporting but are 

176 



providing the needful equipment for the basketball season, in- 
cluding portable baskets and a protecting net to surround the 
court. 

The girls not only show fine spirit in increasing support of 
the boys' teams, but are developing their own basketball and 
other activities under the leadership of Miss Chisholm, ably 
assisted by Miss Wilma Cole of Millis. Such spirit and ac- 
complishment by the whole school deserve heartiest support 
of the whole Town. Medfield has capable boys and girls and 
teachers. She can have good teams and good schools ; but the 
greatest help in its speedy accomplishment will be the active, 
outspoken and financial support of the townspeople, who 
really are vitally interested in both schools and scholars. 

Valuable material help in sports, health work, and physical 
education has been furnished by Miss Wilma Cole, who has 
Volunteered her services since September. Trained and 
skilled, the effectiveness of her work .in lines urged by our 
School Physician in his report has been immediately evident. 
Many homes must have felt its influence. I urge that her 
regular services for one day per week be engaged at once. 

While it is with pleasure that I record progress along some 
lines in which I asked increased support in my report one 
year ago, I feel we have only begun to realize what we can 
and shall do. There is increased attention and effort in 
School work. Lines have been more closely drawn in mak- 
ing promotions and more attention given to careful marking. 
These marks, as sent home on report cards, are not always 
understood alike. Marks are among the hardest problems to 
the teacher, often provocative of most friction and misunder- 
standing, but capable of being of greatest help. Teachers 
are instructed that C should be the average mark — the one 
given most people in most subjects. If all received A those 
A's would mean nothing. Marks should reveal whether 
pupils are making serious effort and in what lines they are 
average, inferior, superior. Thus they may guide in selection 
of school courses and life work. "Signing" a report card does 

177 



not imply approval but acknowledges its receipt; if unsat- 
isfactory it invites conference, to the end of better mutual 
understanding of pupil, parent, and teacher. 

Necessary and useful as they are, even just marks may 
degrade effort and develop false standards. The commercial 
teacher may try to enthuse, inspire, direct, force to 100% 
correctness in the business letter handed in; yet the pupil 
must be "passed" if it is 70% correct in spelling and punctua- 
ation, if a strict percentage basis of marking is followed; and 
the home often demands promotion if "there is only one 
D". But the business letter of application in actual life, if 
it is only 70% correct, loses the job. Nothing short of one's 
best holds one's place at quarterback, goalie, or pitcher; even 
that is not enough if another's best is better. It is but human 
nature to pay no more for "passing" in school than the low- 
est price demanded — if getting on in the grades is the prime 
object. We want gaining the most knowledge or skill or doing 
one's very best as the aim. We want each pupil to be responsible 
increasingly for his own work, progress, plans for future 
school and life. We want each, as far as possible, to be do- 
ing what he finds worth his while — not the teacher's daily 
stint and just enough of that to "get by". The gradual lead- 
ing toward self-reliance and self-direction is our aim. May 
we have the active support and help of the homes? 

Last year's report called attention to serious problems of 
promotion and grading. Nearly one-fifth of our pupils are 
retarded one or more years; there is a range of five or even 
six years in ages of pupils in a single grade. (See age-grade 
table.) Such repetition of grades increases the cost of school- 
ing to the town and seriously injures the retarded pupil. We 
are beginning to meet the situation through the recent ap- 
pointment of Miss Katherine Drogue as special help teacher 
in the Wheelock School. She assists in our over-crowded first 
grade; she also works with groups of retarded pupils both 
on subjects where they need help and in ways which stimu- 
late their general development. Being a teacher of experience 
her influence is already felt. 

It is a pleasure to note the continued careful and wise ex- 

178 



penditure of funds appropriated for school use. The town 
may feel confident it has full return for every dollar expended 
and that all is used for those essential things which it wants 
to give its pupils. We are fortunate, too, in the generous aid 
of the Visiting Nurse Association in the conduct of our Pre- 
school clinic; and in having the Dental clinic provided 
through help of that Association and the Red Cross. The ef- 
fective work of each is reported elsewhere. Grateful acknowl- 
edgement is made of books presented to the schools by Mrs. 
Evelyn Byng. 

For the continued confidence and ever-ready support of 
School Committee and all teachers, supervisors, and workers 
in the work to which we are all giving our best thought the 
Superintendent hereby returns his hearty thanks. 
Respectfully submitted, 

LYMAN R. ALLEN.

REPORT OF HIGH SCHOOL PRINCIPAL 



To the Superintendent of Schools, 
Dear Sir: 

I herewith submit my report as principal of the Medfield 
High School for the year 1.931. 

In June a class of 22 pupils was graduated, the largest 
class yet, I believe. Of this number, four are at present en- 
rolled in higher schools and four others are planning to enroll 
next year. 

The program presented at the graduating exercises con- 
sisted of scenes depicting various educational methods from 
primitive times to the present, each scene introduced by a 
brief essay. The entire program was the work of the mem- 
bers of the class, who under the direction of the English 
teacher, Miss Strode, looked up material and wrote out each 
scene in its entirety. This type of program is more inter- 
esting to the general public than the older essay type of pro- 
gram and really offers the pupils more opportunity for orig- 
inal work than the essay does. Much research work is re- 
quired in order to get historical accuracy in language, cos- 
tuming, and action. Such a program also gives all the mem- 
bers of a large class a chance to participate in the exercises. 
We find that this type of work arouses more interest and 
leads to a greater degree of cooperation among the members 
of the class and school than the older type of graduation pro- 
gram did. The fact that members of lower classes are called 
upon to fill minor parts in these programs leads to a feeling 
that the graduation is an affair for the success or failure of 
which the entire student body is responsible and not merely 
the class which may be graduating. This leads to a healthier 
and more cooperative school spirit. 

180 



Our enrollment in September of this school year was 
somewhat lower than that of a year ago due to the size of 
the graduating class in June and to the removal of several 
families from town. Since the first of the year, however, we 
have had some additions which make the total enrollment 
now not far from what it was last year. As mentioned in 
my last report, there is no apparent prospect of much change 
in enrollment for several years. 

Athletics properly carried on are a valuable means of edu- 
cation. The boy or girl who is not willing to cooperate with 
fellow pupils and coaches, the one who constantly loses his 
temper, who resorts to tricky means to win what he wants, 
who tries to be "the whole show", will never be a complete 
success on the playing field, in the classroom, or in life. 
Proper instruction in athletics where the game is played as 
it should be, not just to win but as a game, and where every 
member engaged realizes that through cooperative effort the 
team, win or lose, has done the very best it can, does much to 
develop the character of those who take part. We have been 
particularly fortunate in our athletics this year. During last 
winter the girls, directed by Miss Regish and working under 
all sorts of handicaps, had a basketball team that made a 
very good showing. In the spring the girls developed a track 
team that took third place in the league track meet. 

The girls, under the direction of Miss Chisholm, are play- 
ing basketball again this year and are again planning track 
work in the spring. I wish there were some means of financ- 
ing field hockey for the girls. This is a game that a larger 
number of girls can play and is used in many schools as a 
part of the physical training program. Equipment for the 
game is rather expensive, however, and we have never seen 
our way clear to purchasing it. 

With the use of the Town Hall for basketball, the girls' 
team should make a much better showing and the boys will 
be able to have a team again. With portable baskets and 
backboards which do not need to be fastened to the wall at 



181 



any point and a netting completely surrounding the playing 
floor there should be no injury to the hall in any way. 

This fall we have been fortunate in having developed 
through the efficient coaching of Mr. Cosgrove and Mr. Kene- 
fick, a football team that won 8 games and tied one game 
out of a total of 11 played, scoring a total of 149 points to 
our opponents' 44. It is also worthy of note that our oppo- 
nents were able to score against us in only the two games in 
which we were defeated. After the third game of the sea- 
son, no one crossed our goal line. The material which made 
up this team was not better than much that we have had in 
the past, but the winning season was the result of cooperative 
action among the members of the team, a willingness to be 
taught (which has sometimes been lacking in the past), and 
a feeling that the town and the school were behind the team 
with both moral and financial support. One noticeable result 
of this attitude toward athletics is an improvement in schol- 
arship and in attitude toward school on the part of some of 
the pupils participating. 

This naturally leads to another subject — marks, promotions, 
and graduation. These matters are of vital interest to each 
parent and yet too often they are not well understood. In our 
marking system C is the average mark. The large majority of 
the pupils should receive this mark. Those whose work is 
better than average may get B or A. Those whose work is 
below average may get D or F. For a mark of F no credit is 
given, for a mark of D one-half credit is given, for C, B, or A 
full credit is given. Promotion in Grades 7 and 8 depends upon 
the number of A, B, and C marks a pupil has. A majority of 
D's and F's will result in non-promotion. Beginning with 
Grade 9, promotion is by units. Each full course counts one 
unit. To rank as a regular second year pupil, 4 units must be 
passed, as a third year pupil, 8, as a Senior, 12, and for gradu- 
ation, 16. No pupil is allowed to take any Senior class sub- 
jects unless he has gained at least 11 units. On the first of 
March, a pupil must be passing in enough units to make 16 in 

182 



order to be a candidate for graduation the following June. No 
pupil in any year may take less than four subjects. The pupil's 
attitude toward life as indicated by attendance at school, 
promptness to school and classes, behavior towards fellow 
pupils and teachers, responsibility, honesty, co-operation, etc., 
is summed up in the word "citizenship", is marked satisfactory 
or unsatisfactory, and no pupil whose citizenship is unsatis- 
factory for 3 out of the 5 marking periods in any one year is 
eligible for clear promotion or for graduation at the end of the 
year, regardless of what the subject marks may be. 

Pupils who wish to attend higher institutions must decide as 
early as possible for best results during the first year where 
they want to go and must remember that a mark below B in 
any subject will not be accepted for entrance to college or nor- 
mal school and does not even qualify the pupil to take an en- 
trance examination in that subject. When a pupil is disap- 
pointed in an attempt to enter a higher school, it is usually 
for one or more of the following reasons: (1) not deciding 
where the pupil is going until late in the high school course, 
(2) not taking proper subjects in high school to meet the re- 
quirements of the school finally chosen, or (3) discovery dur- 
ing the Senior year that marks during the 1st or 2nd year were 
not high enough to be credited towards college entrance. 
Pupils and parents must remember that because of the number 
trying to enter colleges now, practically every device used to- 
day to decide on entrance to college is designed for the pur- 
pose of keeping pupils out rather than getting them in. Every 
teacher in our high school is ready and willing to assist any 
pupil, both with advice on courses and by giving extra time for 
preparation. But the pupil must not wait until it is too late 
before he decides where he wants to go and must be willing to 
put in extra time in preparatory work. 

In behalf of the entire school faculty, I wish to thank you 
and the Committee for the kind assistance given us through- 
out the year. 

Respectfully submitted, 

ALTON H. HARTFORD.

REPORT OF SUPERVISOR OF DRAWING 

To the Superintendent of Schools, 
Dear Sir: 

Each year, as I am allowed the privilege of submitting my 
report of the art work in Medfield, it seems wise to consider 
the general trend of the work as a whole, and check over some 
of our mistakes as well as the favorable points of the situation. 

Looking backward four or five years, there is no doubt that 
we have made much progress; but looking ahead at the un- 
limited possibilities and great variety of methods by which 
we can broaden our interests and improve this part of the 
school work, we are humble indeed. We wonder how anyone 
can dare take the responsibility of judging wisely which pro- 
blems are for the children's best welfare and happiness. Dis- 
carding things which are too expensive and things which take 
too long to complete successfully in class periods, we con- 
stantly have a mass of new material before us for considera- 
tion. 

Tinted charcoal pictures, glass and tinfoil pictures, colored 
paper designs on tin utensils, envelope linings glued on vari- 
ous objects, and block printed cards and book plates have 
recently proven practical additions to the course. 

During the past year, the upper grades and the High School 
classes took part in both the Massachusetts Savings Banks 
Association and the S. P. C. A. poster contests. Several Medals 
and many honorable mentions were awarded in this town. 

Our annual exhibition was held in the Town Hall in connec- 
tion with the Health Day program. It was impossible to 
mount the work so as to do it justice, but many people seemed 
to feel that it added to the success of the whole affair. 

The grades are now having a supervised period of drawing 
every week between the periods taught by the teacher. They 
are all showing a noticeable improvement in workmanship, due 
to the extra time, the continuity of the work under the es- 



184 



tablished course of drawing now in use, and the natural 
growth due to working for a number of years under one 
supervisor. 

The advanced High School class is excellent and gains skill 
steadily. 

The class in Mechanical Drawing started last year produced 
far above the average first year work. Four of these pupils 
are continuing the subject this term, although they get very 
little personal attention in the class of beginners. 

The seventh and eighth grades are still a problem. It is 
doubtful if either the walk across town to class or the short 
time allotted to them is advisable, but no solution has yet 
been found to these difficulties. 

The great need of Manual Training of some sort, for both 
boys and girls, is still not satisfied; although a special class 
has been working with me along these lines one period a week 
for the past year. This experiment showed plainly that both 
time and equipment are essential for worth-while results. 

The Supervisor cannot add such classes to present schedule 
without cutting the regular drawing classes somewhere, and it 
is hard to know where that will do the least harm. This is 
one of the improvements we hope to undertake in 1932. 

The teachers deserve praise for their cooperation in follow- 
ing the drawing outline. Now that it has become a regular 
part of the curriculum, we are trying to make it more flexible 
and apply it more often to the particular needs of each grade. 

In supervision, the following points are being stressed wher- 
ever possible without being too tiresome. 

1. Art when combined with Life's environment, becomes a 
growing human benefit. 

2. Utility may be added to Art without detracting from 
its beauty. 

3. Every manufactured object should become an article of 
beauty and still retain its utility. 

185 



If we allow skill in technique to become more important 
than the child's enjoyment of the problem, some authorities 
say we fail entirely. Art should mean pleasure always. 

The School Committee has been generous and appreciative 
as usual, and as Superintendent, you have been a source of 
help and inspiration to us all. 

Respectfully submitted, 

EVELYN H. JUDD.

REPORT OF SUPERVISOR OF MUSIC 

To the Superintendent of Schools, 

Dear Sir: 

We depend on music in school for inspiration, for education, 
for citizenship, for school spirit, for recreation. Music, more 
than any other one subject, may be held a factor in all of 
these lines. So it is always our endeavor to make music fill 
this large place. 

The fifth and sixth grades sang a program of songs in 
Chenery Hall, inviting their parents and friends. A Gypsy 
song and. a Japanese song were sung in costume. We are in- 
debted to Mrs. Daniels Hamant for accompaniments. 

The Junior High School sang the cantata "The Spirit of 76" 
in costume and the Junior High School Orchestra played. Miss 
Elaine Benedict, of the High School, accompanied the cantata. 

We thank the Selectmen for the hall on both occasions. 

The three classes of the Junior High School, including the 
Freshmen, now have two music periods a week, each class 
singing three periods of every four. They have new music 
books for four part singing. We thank you and the School 
Committee for this help in the Music Department. 

Respectfully submitted, 

NETTIE F. HAMANT.

REPORT OF SCHOOL PHYSICIAN 

To the Superintendent of Schools, 

Dear Sir: 

During the period from March 1, 1931 to January 15, 1932 
your school physician and nurse have not had to combat any 
outbreak of the contagious diseases. This is typically the ex- 
perience of Medfield — due in large part to our being a commu- 
nity of intelligently, healthfully-living persons and to our good 
fortune in not having any of these diseases brought among us 
by transients. However, in the event of any of these diseases 
occurring, I wish to stress the importance of observation of the 
child at home and the detention at home of any ailing child 
until the character of its illness is determined. Do not send a 
sick child to school. 

Against diphtheria a large proportion of the children have 
been immunized and this proportion is being maintained by 
the administration of toxin-anti-toxin before the first-grader 
enters school. 

Protection against small pox is maintained through 100 per 
cent vaccination, as required by State law. 

The posture of the pupils shows distinct improvement over 
that of three years ago. I would attribute this largely to the 
health education work of the school nurse during this time and 
more recently to the generously-given services of Miss Wilma 
Cole of Millis, who has given physical instruction this term. 

It is much to be hoped that some day Medfield will include 
in its curriculum instruction by a physical education graduate, 
which could surely be possible if the towns cooperating in this 
school union would adopt such method as is now in practice in 
giving instruction in music and drawing and employ one in- 
structor for the union. 

Schick tests were given in March 1931 and toxin-anti-toxin 
was given in April. Special physical examinations were given 

188 



the candidates for the baseball team and for the girls' track 
team. In September physical examinations were made of 243 
grammar pupils and 149 high school pupils. Those expecting 
to participate in athletics were again required to take a more 
rigorous examination than the others. Weekly visits are 
made to the Ralph Wheelock School and the High School is 
visited on call as required. 

The defects found and reported to the parents were as 
follows: 

Enlarged or Diseased Tonsils 17 

Enlarged Glands 1 

Chronic Ear Disease 2 

Hardened Wax in Ear 6 

Valvular Heart Disease 2 

Scabies (itch) 3 

Impetigo 2 

Dental defects were reported by the dental clinic, sponsored 
by the local Red Cross organization ; it is noteworthy that den- 
tal defects are fast decreasing since this clinic has been func- 
tioning. 

Schick tests are to be given this month, January, to 64 
pupils. 

Respectfully submitted, 

H. L. PARK, M.D.

REPORT OF SCHOOL NURSE 

To the Superintendent of Schools, 

Dear Sir: 

I hereby submit my annual report for the town of Medfield. 

The desirability of good health is assumed by the majority 
of persons without question. The school is interested in the 
health of each child for the following reasons: 

1. Health largely determines the factors of interest and 
endurance. 

2. Interest and endurance largely determine efficiency. 

3. Efficiency during youth in studies and games, and during 
maturity in the more serious tasks of life, largely determines 
happiness and success. 

The school, to obtain the above objective, has the following 
health program: 

1. Health service, or the giving of health examinations, 
and inspections; and the follow-up to insure correction of de- 
fects and communicable disease control. 

2. Physical education, the program of big muscle activity. 

3. Health Education. 

Through these various activities the school may accomplish 
a great deal in the maintenance and improvement of the health 
of the school children and in educating them so that they are 
better able to care for their own health. 

They are interested in the matter of health also in various 
ways. To celebrate Child Health Day they presented the pa- 
geant "Health of the Nations" and "The Toy Shop" at Chen- 
ery Hall before a large audience. 

We are teaching parents and children the importance of com- 
municable disease control. Herewith is a report of our various 
clinics. 

a Dr. McKnight's clinic, February 3, 1931. 

92 pupils given Schick test. 77 negative; 6 pseudo; 9 posi- 
tive. 



190 



b Dr. Park's clinic, March 30, 1931. 

5 pupils given Schick test; 5 negative. 34 children had toxin- 
anti-toxin. 

c Pre-school clinic in May ; Dr. Park examining physician. 
26 children examined; 7 cases defective tonsils; 9 cases de- 
fective teeth; 29 had toxin-anti-toxin. 

d Re-examination of Chadwick clinic for tuberculosis. 

Number of children recommended for re-examination 9 

Number re-examined 9 

Number found improved 9 

Number X-rayed 9 

Number discharged 2 

New cases examined 2 

New cases X-rayed 1 

e Report of annual sight and hearing tests. 

Number of pupils enrolled in the schools 392 

Number found defective in eyesight 15 

Number found defective in hearing 1 

Number of parents or guardians notified 16 

f Dental Clinics. 

Number of clinics held 20 

Number of pupils treated 204 

Number of fillings 176 

Number of extractions 151 

Number of cleansings 29 

Dental Clinic 
The Dental Clinic conducted for the school by the aid of 
the Visiting Nurse Association and the Red Cross has con- 
tinued its good work of last year. Dr. Carroll has during the 
year had further study at Harvard Public Health School. 

Our objective in this work is dental care for all children and 
we offer the clinic for those who want to take advantage of it. 
Because of the fact that few people escape the ravages of den- 
tal disease, and that bodily ills often result, it is highly desir- 
able that those things be taught that will arouse the child to 
the desire to eliminate these existing troubles and develop re- 
sistance to future ones. 

191 



We hope pupils and parents can be made to realize the facts 
that proper nutrition, good digestion, elimination, sunshine, ex- 
ercise and fresh air, adherence to physical cleanliness, regular 
visits to the dentist all promote the health of the body and its 
parts. We also teach that mouth hygiene is more than brushing 
of teeth and visits to the dentist. What a wonderful oppor- 
tunity the school dental clinic has for this teaching! 

I want to thank the parents and teachers for their splendid 
co-operation during this past year. 

Respectfully submitted, 

MARTHA E. BLOOD. R.N.

REPORT OF THE INSPECTOR OF ANIMALS 

January 1, 1933. 
To the Selectmen of Med field: 
Gentlemen: 

I hereby submit to you my report for the past year. 

On November 14, 1931, I received orders from the Director 
of the Division of Animal Industry, Boston, Massachusetts, 
to make the annual complete census and inspection of all 
cattle, sheep, swine, and goats, kept in the town; this inspec- 
tion to be completed not later than February 1, 1932. During 
this examination, I visited 38 stables, in which were kept 341 
cattle, 454 swine, no sheep and 1 goat. The animals appeared 
healthy, and most of the stables were kept clean. 

'I received notice, September 12, 1932, of a dog which the 
owner said showed signs of Rabies, and had him killed. I 
sent the dog's head to the Laboratory to be examined and 
was informed that the brain proved symptoms of Rabies. 

During the past year, five persons were bitten by five dif- 
ferent dogs. These dogs were all quarantined for a period of 
14 days, four of which have been released. One dog is in 
quarantine yet, as the 14 days have not expired. 

On December 14, 1932, a bull arrived from the State of 
Washington, and I reported this to the Animal Industry and 
he was released. 

I received orders again, on November 7, 1932, to make an- 
other inspection, to be completed December 31, 1932. During 
this examination I visited 32 stables, in which were kept 359 
cattle, 734 swine, no goats, and no sheep. 

On this inspection, one cow was quarantined for tuberculo- 
sis, and at this date is still restricted. I found the stables 
kept very clean, except one or two which have recieved some 
attention since the inspection. 

Very truly yours, 

GEORGE S. CHENEY, 

Inspector of Animals.

REPORT OF THE CEMETERY COMMISSIONERS 



To the Honorable Board of Selectmen: 
Gentlemen : 

Work was carried on in the cemetery as usual during the 
year. 

The driveways in the new cemetery should be graveled so 
as to make the conditions much better. 

We therefore recommend an appropriation of $2,000. 
Very truly yours,

Report of the Board of Fire Engineers 

December 31, 1932. 
To the Honorable Board of Selectmen: 
Gentlemen : 

The Board of Fire Engineers respectfully submit the report 
of the Fire Department for the year ending December 31, 1932. 

The equipment is in good condition, and requires no exten- 
sive repairs. 

The total alarms for the year was 87, of which 41 were 
whistle and 46 were still. There was one call to Millis for a 
fire at the Boot Shop, and one call to Westwood for a woods 
fire. These fires are classified as follows: 

Frame Buildings 10 

Chimney 15 

Woods and Brush 25 

Grass 33 

Automobile 2 

Out of Town 2 

The total damage to buildings and contents was $17,273. 
The damage to the 695 acres of woodland burned over 
was $3,075. 

There was a total of 814,220 gallons of water used in ex- 
tinguishing these fires. 

The fire of April 29, 1932, in Rocky Woods burned a total 
of 580 acres, costing the Town $714.65 to extinguish. This 
cost was kept down by the great help under the cooperative 
plan of the Fire Departments from Dover, Millis, Walpole, 
Westwood, Norwood, Foxboro, Needham, Wellesley, and 
Natick. 

In conclusion, the Engineers wish to thank the townspeople 
and the members of the department for their cooperation. 
Respectfully submitted, 

ALLAN A. KINGSBURY, 
EDGAR W. ALLEN, 

Fire Engineers.

REPORT OF THE WATER AND SEWERAGE BOARD 



Water Department 

The old water system went out of commission, October 26, 
1932, the State water being turned on this date, giving the 
Town the long looked for Hydrant Service. 

During the year, we have added 33 new water takers and 
lost one old taker, who would not connect with the new 
system and installed a system of his own. 

There were eight water takers who refused to have new 
services put in, so the Town would not install meters unless 
they put in cement lined pipe. In order to cover the cost 
of the amount of water they use from the new system over 
the old system, we have raised their rates. 

We recommend an appropriation of $3,500 for the first six 
months expenses, after that the new water rates will take 
care of all expenses.

SEWER DEPARTMENT 



Sanitary Sewers 

There have been four stoppages in the Sewer System; two 
on Miller Street, and two on East Main Street, caused by 
tree roots. They have been cleaned out and left in good 
condition. 

The Sewer Beds have had the usual care and are in good 
condition. The beds need new r gravel spread on them this 
year. 

We recommend an appropriation of $800 for the year 1933.

LIBRARY REPORT 



To the citizens of the Town of Medfield, the Trustees of 
the Memorial Public Library respectfully submit the follow- 
ing report for the year 1932. 

Dr. Frank H. Clough and Miss Anne C. Donlan were re- 
elected members of the board, and Mrs. Nellie T. Keyou was 
elected to complete the unexpired term of Mr. Ellery C. 
Crocker. The organization has remained the same: Dr. 
Clough, Chairman; Miss Donlan, Secretary. 

During the year the following books were purchased : Adult, 
135; Juvenile, 92; World Book, 14 volumes, making a total 
of 241 books. 

We wish to express our appreciation to the following people 
for gifts: 

Mrs. Wheelwright 20 juveniles 

Mrs. Griffin 4 juveniles 

Dr. Goldthwait 15 non-fiction 

Ladies' Auxiliary, A. 0. H. 

"Nuns of the Battlefield 1 ' 
Mr. Chandler 3 fiction 

Circulation, (exclusive of magazines) 17,027 

Adult 12,629 

Juvenile 4,398 

Non-fiction 2,782 

$81.50 has been turned over to the Town Treasurer for 
fines collected. 

In conclusion, the trustees recommend that the appropria- 
tion for the upkeep of the library for the coining year shall 
be $1,800 including the dog taxes. 



94 



We realize the financial conditions of the citizens of the 
Town, and for that reason, we, ourselves, have voted to reduce 
the amount of appropriation 10% as of other years in spite 
of the fact that we believe that the library should be, and is, 
of more benefit during this period of enforced unemployment. 
Respectfully submitted, 

ANNE C. DONLAN, 

Secretary.

A REPORT OF THE SCHOOL COMMITTEE 



To the Citizens of Med field: 

The School Committee submits the following report for the 
year 1932: 

The Committee feel that the standard of Scholarship, and 
the spirit of cooperation in both schools, has steadily im- 
proved during the past year, and takes this opportunity to 
express its appreciation of the untiring and successful efforts 
of the superintendent in achieving these gratifying results. 
It feels that the Pageant presented and written by the High 
School as Graduation Exercises, and also as the Town's 
George Washington- celebration, was splendid evidence of the 
fine work of which our High School is capable. 

Our schools' greatest need at present, is the encouragement 
of the parents. One way in which the parents could show 
their interest, is by being present at School gatherings, to 
which they are invited. Last winter the Girls' Athletic Asso- 
ciation and the women teachers ran a whist party in order 
to raise enough money to present to the Football Team small 
silver footballs as mementos of a most successful season, due 
to the efforts of the boys and of the men teachers. The par- 
ents were invited to the School on the evening of March 11th 
for this presentation and to hear one of the Harvard Football 
Team speak. Through the generosity of a friend, it was pos- 
sible to serve refreshments. As far as the scholars were con- 
cerned, this evening met with much appreciation, but unfor- 
tunately, very few parents were present. 

The citizens of Medfield are indebted to the Class of 1926 
for their gift of shrubbery which has so greatly improved the 
appearance of our High School grounds. 

We are also indebted to a friend of the School for the 
money used as prizes for the "Game Plan." In Senior High, 
the prize was awarded to Priscilla Kingsbuiy, Louise Kings- 
bury, and Pauline Cheney, who collaborated on a plan. In 
Junior High, Herbert Wight was awarded first prize and 
Margaret Hardy second prize. 

140 



As many parents were desirous of a No-School Signal, the 
Committee announce that at eight o'clock, three blasts, four 
times repeated, will be sounded on such mornings as it is 
deemed inadvisable to open school. 

Repairs and improvements brought to date as follows : 

Resurfacing desks in Ralph Wheelock School completed. 

Storage batteries and bell service renewed. 

Bubbler installed upstairs in Ralph Wheelock School. 

Water service completed in both schools. 

The Committee feels that your Schools are now being 
operated on the most economical basis possible. As they 
have not unduly expanded, retrenchment is not possible unless 
the scholars are to suffer. 

In order to maintain our present standards, the Committee 
feels that the 1932 Appropriation is necessary for another 
year, but wishing to cooperate in the endeavor to lessen Town 
expenses, we are asking for an appropriation of $31,000.00 for 
the year 1933. 

Respectfully submitted, 

FRANK H. CLOUGH, 
ALICE W. CONWAY, 
EVELYN BYNG

REPORT OF SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS 



To the School Committee of Med field: 

This year, like most years, has seen several changes in our 
teaching staff. Removal from the State compelled the resigna- 
tion of Mrs. McMurray and lost to us her fine, womanly in- 
fluence. Miss Strode, whose strong and constantly-growing 
leadership in the English department has done so much to 
develop that work in both school and outside activities, re- 
ceived a merited promotion to the schools of Lexington. Miss 
Esther J. Forbes of Westborough whose training was similar 
to Miss Strode's, took up her work; and Miss Loretta M. 
Clarke of Meclford, a graduate of Radcliffe with experience 
in teaching and a diploma from the University of Toulouse, 
France, is ably conducting the work of the French department. 
There has also been a change in the third grade and Miss 
Elizabeth L. Crombie, a teacher of good experience, took up 
(his work. 

Mention should also be made of the Special Help class to 
which Miss Katherine M. Drogue came in January 1932. This 
class is designed to take from the several grades of the 
Ralph Wheelock school those pupils who need special help 
for various reasons. Her work, more varied in kind and 
better adapted to individual needs, not only helps them make 
faster progress but makes it possible for the other teachers 
to accomplish more with more uniform groups in the grades 
from which they are taken. 

Several special features of the year's work deserve particular 
mention. Notable among them was the High School gradua- 
tion pageant. Conceived, written, staged, coached, and given 
entirely by our school, with appropriate music selected and 
rendered by them, it made a graduation exercise and a Town 
Pageant worthy of the Washington Bicentennial and of any 
High School. It showed in successive scenes picturesque, 
grave, or gay, with balance, with historic accuracy, and with 

152 



literary merit how the people of this vicinity came to know 
Washington, from the time of his first visit to Boston up to 
the time of his death. Such accomplishment as this is the 
best possible demonstration of the quality of work done in 
our school and should foster loyal support from every parent 
and citizen. 

In the so-called Game Plan contest in Norfolk County our 
pupils above the sixth grade had another opportunity during 
the fall to show the practical value of their work in Drawing, 
Civics, and other social sciences. They were asked to describe 
their own town of today, then to draw its plan and write its 
description as they would like it to be 100 years hence. A 
large number of pupils put in much thought and effort and 
many good plans were exhibited. As a group the plans from 
this town and the others of this Superintendency Union were 
awarded third prize in the County competition. 

It is a pleasure to testify to the constant growth during 
the past year of a helpful school spirit. Not only are the 
teachers cooperating willingly; the pupils, especially in the 
High School, are growing in the spirit of self-reliant work. 
Among other causes this is due, I am convinced, to strong co- 
operation in athletics by both boys and girls under the lead- 
ership of Miss Chisholm and the men teachers. We have 
developed some good teams which have won more than their 
share of victories. The real success of athletics, however, 
lies in the fact that they serve to develop healthy, disciplined 
bodies and minds, to give an appropriate outlet for physical 
energy and to be a real help to school work — not to displace 
it or distract from it. They are no source of expense to the 
Town but they appeal to the pupils as worth being earned. 
It would, in fact, be much better if the Town, perhaps through 
financial appropriation but certainly through hearty, inter- 
ested support of all kinds, gave more real assistance and 
incentive and reward. Equipment costs money; so also do 
trips to competing schools and authorized officials whose 
efficiency and impartiality can hardly be questioned by home 
or visiting teams or supporters. With no appropriations, no 
enclosed field, and admission charges, support becomes a hard 

153 



problem. Few citizens attend contests to cheer our teams 
when winning or spur on to redoubled efforts when losing; 
few show any interest at the close of a season if a celebra- 
tion is planned. Medfield pupils and teachers alike need 
to have evidence that Medfield is united in loyal and active 
interest in them and all their work. 

The general progress made by our schools during this year 
of depression and uncertainty and changes should be clear 
from careful reading of the appended reports and tables. Cer- 
tain tabulations often included are this year omitted, largely 
for economy. However, the list of names of pupils perfect 
in attendance has been omitted for another reason: overem- 
phasis upon individual records is apt to put undue pressure 
on those who need it least and not at all on those who are 
failing to develop that habit. Regular and punctual attend- 
ance at school, as at a place of business, is essential; forma- 
tion of the habit is important. However, when one's physical 
condition is such that attendance is harmful for him and dan- 
gerous for other pupils he should be urged to remain at home 
rather than go to school. School sessions will rarely be 
omitted, as the school bus nearly equalizes the opportunity 
of attendance in inclement weather; let each home decide 
whether its pupils should for their own welfare or that of 
others, attend on any particular day; let it inform the 
school promptly in writing, so that reasons for proper absence 
may be known at once. 

The financial cost of the schools is so much a topic of public 
discussion that it should be considered here. During the year 
1931 Medfield spent for support of schools $32,617.63; reim- 
bursement (mainly from the State) was $5,445.97 or almost 
exactly 1/6. While this proportion will be somewhat de- 
creased henceforth, since we now number over 500 families 
and are not entitled to High school aid, we may still expect 
a return of about 1/8 unless existing laws are changed. For 



154 



the school year ending last June the total cost for running our 
schools (neglecting this reimbursement) was $86.42 per pupil 
or 47 cents per day for each pupil. Towns of our own group 
averaged $93.23 and the State average was $99.19. The only 
towns noted among our neighbors which pay less are two of 
low valuation which are taxing themselves for education dis- 
tinctly more than we are. Comparison of salaries shows the 
same relative standing. 

School costs today are of course greater everywhere than a 
few years ago; Medfield has increased less than the average. 
Careful studies show that throughout the United States the 
cost of support in 1930 was 4.18 times that in 1914. 49% 
of this increase was due to the decreased buying power of 
the dollar — it took so much more to buy the same goods or 
services; 27% was due to increased attendance at schools and 
longer continuance in school — there were more pupils, classes, 
teachers, buildings; the remaining 24% was for all other fac- 
tors — increased relative salaries, enlarged courses, improve- 
ments in educational service, greater proportion of specialized 
High school work. 

Judged by these figures Medfield has been decidedly eco- 
nomical. Our School Report of 1912, studied in comparison 
with the present, shows a disproportionate increase in the 
number of High school pupils — they have increased 2 1/8 
times, the elementary 1%. We now have two large buildings 
in place of one large and one rural. Yet our total cost is 
but 3.82 times in place of 4.18; our average High school 
salary has increased 1.89; elementary salary 2.37; janitor's 
salary, 2.57; book cost per pupil, 1.42. 

Furthermore a frequently- forgotten element enters in when 
salaries are considered: at that time one who taught school 
for 32 or 34 weeks did not earn enough to support himself 
during the entire year. Our High school assistant then re- 
ceived but $10.34 per week if one considers she lived 52 
weeks a year; our average elementary teacher in Medfield 

155 



received $9.63. We now think of teaching as a self-supporting 
occupation ; and certainly the requirement now becoming gen- 
eral (four years of professional preparation after High school 
graduation) together with demands of growth in service make 
it essential to pay it as such. 

"Fads and frills" are often mentioned as reasons for in- 
creased costs of schools. These presumably refer to newer 
subjects of instruction; with them, however, Medfield is 
practically not concerned. We have actually less of the 
newer subjects now than in 1912 — not because we do not 
approve those then taught but because with present enrolment 
and accommodations we lack opportunity for them. We then 
had Music and Drawing supervisors, with basketry, raffia, 
weaving, sewing, agriculture in 4-H clubs and (shortly after) 
wood working. 

Under these conditions it is evident that our schools have 
been conservatively and economically administered. Conse- 
quently we are less able to cut down present costs. If no 
unessentials have been introduced we cannot save by cutting 
out any. If we have paid teachers less than most (we aver- 
aged $53.53 per pupil, our group of towns $56.30, and the 
State $69.89) we cannot cut them without risk of being unable 
to maintain permanently a teaching force to compare fa- 
vorably with our neighbors or in any way satisfactory to 
ourselves. 

The whole problem becomes simply a question of what 
Medfield really wants and can afford for its children. Med- 
field's ability to pay can not be judged by the condition of 
any other town. It should be clearly understood that any 
serious curtailment of financial support will surely curtail the 
efficiency of the work and the quality of teachers obtainable 
in the long run. Speaking for the teachers now in service, 
I feel sure they will render the best service in their power 
and will do all possible to guide their pupils aright. Medfield 
pupils are worth the best help we can give them now and 
whatever we do not give now we can not give later. I know 
the spirit in which you, the members of the School Committee, 
work and I do not believe Medfield will fail to support you 
to the limit of its ability. 

156 



May I personally offer you and all my co-workers sincere 
thanks for your generous support and confidence? 
Respectfully submitted, 

LYMAN R. ALLEN, 
Superintendent of Schools.

REPORT OF HIGH SCHOOL PRINCIPAL 

To the Superintendent of Schools : 

I herewith submit a brief report for the year 1932. 

During this year school membership has remained 
fairly constant, there being but about half a dozen more 
pupils enrolled this fall than there were last spring. No 
appreciable change in membership is anticipated for next 
year. 

The spirit of the school, both in the classroom and 
outside, has been excellent. Most of the pupils are ap- 
parently trying to make the most of their educational 
facilities. We still have the problem of the pupil who 
is not interested in, nor adapted to, the type of work 
which our school can give and who ought to have the 
facilities of vocational education of some sort. 

Much of the constant improvement in school spirit can 
be traced directly to the advance in athletics under the 
able direction of Mr. Cosgrove, Mr. Kenefick, and Miss 
Chisholm. While athletics should always be subordinated 
to academic activities, it is nevertheless true that pupils 
will feel more pride in a school whose athletic teams can 
meet their opponents with at least an even chance of 
winning. Reputations won on the athletic field must be 
upheld in the classroom. A proper attitude towards 
classwork and a passing grade in marks must be main- 
tained in order that a pupil be eligible to represent the 
school in athletics. 

In football, the past two seasons have been particularly 
gratifying. Out of a total of nineteen games played only 
three have been lost. Three have been tied and thirteen 
won. In only four of the nineteen games have our 
opponents been able to score against us. Thanks to the 
generosity of the town in allowing the use of the Town 
Hall, we got a fair start in basketball last year which 



158 



ought to result in a better season this winter. In base- 
ball last spring we broke about even, and in a track meet 
at Medway took second place in a four-sided contest. The 
greatest handicap in athletics at present is lack of 
finances. 

The adoption of a new report card this fall will, we 
hope, lead to a better understanding between the home 
and the school. This card is arranged to include with the 
subject mark the teacher's estimate of the pupil's indus- 
try and attitude towards the subject. It is hoped that 
this will explain some of the apparently poor marks which 
pupils receive. For instance a Latin mark of D/l or 
F/l would indicate that the subject was so hard for the 
pupil that he should not be taking it. A mark of C/l 
would indicate that the pupil could with his best effort 
do only average work in the subject. On the other hand 
a mark of F/4 or C/4 would indicate that the pupil was 
not putting enough effort into the subject and could with 
greater application get a higher mark. This new card 
also carries on the back information regarding promotion, 
graduation, home study, etc., which formerly had to be 
mimeographed on a separate sheet of paper. 

No report of the year's activities would be complete 
without an account of the graduation exercises in June. 
The school was asked by the Medfield Committee for the 
Washington Bi-centennial Celebration to accept the task 
of giving the official town celebration. It was thought 
best for several reasons to combine this with the gradua- 
tion exercises as a climax for the year's activities. 
Although the task was really thrust upon them, the 
pupils responded most commendably, and a wholly origi- 
nal pageant was written and produced for the occasion. 
Taking for our main theme the activities of Washington 
as they were connected with New England, we developed 
nine episodes, each introduced by a pupil representing 
some New England town. The writing of the episodes 
was undertaken by various pupils and the result was 

159 



exceptionally successful and interesting. The action of 
the School Committee in voting from their funds enough 
money to cover costuming expenses made possible the 
services of a professional costumer and added materially 
to the success of the affair. The entire presentation was 
a credit to the school and to the town. Copies of the 
program sent to the George Washington Bi-centennial 
Committee in Washington, D. C, received very favorable 
comment. 

Of the eighteen members of this graduating class, four 
are now attending higher schools. This makes a total 
of twelve Medfield High graduates at present continuing 
their education in schools above high school grade. 

In closing I wish to thank you and the School Commit- 
tee for the assistance you have given the school and the 
teachers during the year. 

Respectfully submitted, 

ALTON H. HARTFORD, 

Principal.

REPORT OF SUPERVISOR OF DRAWING 



To the Superintendent of Schools : 

It gives me pleasure to have the privilege of submitting 
the customary report as Drawing Supervisor in the Med- 
field schools. 

Though scarcely twenty years ago ART was considered 
as the least of school subjects, its cultural value in the 
life of the nation is rarely questioned today. Children 
with a growing art knowledge throughout their school 
training will have their eyes and hands and minds recep- 
tive to all sorts of natural beauties which would otherwise 
be hidden from them, giving them pleasure that riches 
cannot buy and an insight that poverty cannot shut out. 
This alone seems a sufficient reason for ART as a neces- 
sary part to a well balanced education, if no other existed. 

During the early period of industrial growth in this 
country, little attention was given to the design and color 
of manufactured products but in the last few years, in 
spite of the general decline in business, a remarkable art 
sensitiveness has developed throughout all the national 
industries. Printed products have set up a higher 
standard of art values; automobile companies engage 
artists at enormous salaries to direct the lines and colors 
of their cars; even kitchen utensils have shed their drab 
attire and taken on a glory of color. Everywhere the 
manufacturers are demanding experts to add ART to their 
wares, recognizing that buyers today require beauty plus 
utility in all their purchased articles. 

For this utilitarian reason as well as the cultural, school 
art today has a double need for its encouragement even in 
times of business depression. 

After working here eight years, I am finding it im- 
portant that each child have a correct start in ART, as 
it is difficult to undo the habits of early years. Dictation 

161 



is wrong, but the new method of avoiding all direction is 
equally bad. In our outlines we suggest methods, yet 
allow freedom of expression wherever possible. Under 
this plan, there seems to be improvement each year in 
creative ability, imagination, and in the fearlessness with 
which they attack new problems. 

In the High School classes, very little improvement is 
noted during the past year, probably because working 
conditions have been unsuitable. However, the Mechani- 
cal Drawing class has kept up its enthusiasm and is still 
doing very worth while work. 

Aside from our usual outlined work, we have spent 
time on several outside projects this year. The children 
won five bronze medals, four silver medals, and seven 
subscriptions to the magazine, "Our Dumb Animals," in 
the S. P. C. A. poster contest. One child won a cash 
prize in the Norfolk County Health Association poster 
contest. Mr. Allen's four towns together won a bust of 
George Washington in the Game Plan contest at Dedham. 
This project was carried out by the co-operation of the 
English, Civics and Drawing classes. There should always 
be a place for such worth while extras in any school 
program. It gives us a chance to compare our work with 
that of other towns. 

I am grateful to all the teachers who are making the 
drawing work a vital influence in our children's lives and 
to our Superintendent for his help to us all. I am espe- 
cially grateful for the wisdom of our School Committee 
who are trying to be fair to all in these trying times. 
Very sincerely yours, 

EVELYN H. JUDD.

REPORT OF THE MUSIC SUPERVISOR 



To the Superintendent of Schools: 

Association with good music lends more to high ideals 
than any other thought or activity. Love for music is 
best maintained by an understanding of it. The study 
of music reading gives training in fundamentals that are 
essential to any appreciation of the art. 

In school the practice of music reading is carried into 
part singing. Beginning in the first grade, we have two- 
part music in the fourth grade, three-part in the seventh 
and four-part when there are changed voices to sing a 
bass ; this is sometimes in the eighth grade but there are 
many more in the ninth or Freshman class. 

The importance of quick and accurate reading cannot 
be too highly stressed. It would be impossible to get 
pupils to make music who know nothing about it. It 
would be impossible to secure good music in the High 
School if the students could not read music. 

In some schools there is one period a week allowed for 
music in the High School. I am most happy to say that 
in Medfield the pupils of the Junior High and of two 
classes of the Senior High school have two music periods 
a week. 

The performance of a cantata by the students is more 
educational than listening lessons or talks about music. 
The playing of a symphony by the school orchestra is of 
more value to the players than listening to the same on 
the radio. 

In June the fifth and sixth grades of the Ralph 
Wheelock School sang the Washington Cantata. The 
High school orchestra played. The Senior and Junior 



163 



High schools gave an historical pageant for graduation. 
Three classes made the scenes and gave the speaking 
parts. The other three classes sang appropriate songs, 
one for each episode. 

Respectfully submitted, 

NETTIE F. HAMANT, 
Supervisor of Music.

REPORT OF THE SCHOOL PHYSICIAN 



To the Superintendent of Schools: 

During the winter and spring terms of 1932, we had 
an outbreak of scarlet fever among our pupils — the first 
cases being high school pupils. The schools were kept 
open and daily inspection made of the throat of every 
pupil. Any child showing the slightest sign of illness 
was immediately sent home and kept there until known 
to be free of contagious disease. The total number of 
cases was not large and they involved only eight families. 
With the opening of school in September, the routine 
physical examinations were begun and duly completed. 
Defects noted and reported were as follows : 

Enlarged or diseased tonsils 32 

Enlarged glands 5 

Hardened wax in ears 6 

Chronic ear disease 1 

Valvular heart disease 2 

Nervous disorders 3 

Impetigo 1 

Scabies (itch) 2 

These defects do not include any of long standing, 

chronic nature which are known to be under proper care. 

The single case of impetigo listed was badly infected and 

had to be kept from school for a week. We have had two 

or three other cases of impetigo with only a very slight 

amount of infection which were rapidly cleared up. 

There have been no cases of pediculosis (lice) . 

The continued functioning of the Dental Clinic — 
sponsored by the Red Cross and District Nurse Associa- 
tion — is keeping the mouths and teeth of the children in 
splendid condition with a minimum number of dental 
defects and most of these of a minor nature. 

There are at the present time cases of chicken pox 
among pupils of the grade school. 



165 



At some time before March 1, Schick tests will be given 
those who received toxin-anti-toxin last May at the pre- 
school clinic; and opportunity will be given again in May 
to have toxin-anti-toxin immunization to diphtheria. I 
would estimate that we probably have 50 % of the children 
in the grades immunized to diphtheria. 

Respectfully submitted, 

H. L. PARK, M. D.

REPORT OF THE SCHOOL NURSE 



To the Superintendent of Schools : 

I hereby submit my annual report for the town of 
Medfield: 

The major objective of the school health nursing- 
program is to develop and maintain a health service which 
includes the child in relation to his adjustment in his 
home, school, and community. To attain this objective 
my yearly program has been as follows: 

A. Conferences with children referred by the class- 
room teachers for the following reasons: 

1. Suspected symptoms of disease. 

2. Need for minor treatment. 

3. Need for health advice. 

B. Conferences with teachers and parents. Home 
visiting is very important, for the nurse through her con- 
tact gets a better understanding of the homes and the 
general factors which influence the health of the children 
and their adjustment in school. 

C. Assisting the school physician during his yearly 
physical examinations. A health record of each child is 
available. This information is compiled by grades and is 
useful in studying the health status of the pupil. 

D. Special or other health projects carried on in the 
school in which the school nurse is interested: 

1. Immunization against diphtheria. Twenty-six 
children were given toxin-anti-toxin at the pre-school 
clinic in May. Parents are realizing that communica- 
ble disease control is in the interest of their own 
children as well as all others. 



167 



2. Pre-school clinic, which is held in May for the 
physical examination and immunization of the children 
who are to enter school the following September. The 
following are the findings: 

Attended 27 

Enlarged Tonsils 3 

Defective Teeth 5 

Defective Heart 3 

Underweight 1 

Enlarged Glands 1 

As a result of this clinic the children entering school 
are in better physical condition because their defects have 
been detected and corrected. 

3. Vision and Hearing testing — This year through the 
generosity of the Visiting Nurse Association the Audio- 
meter has been available. This gives the children a 
more accurate testing of their hearing. 

4. Dental Clinic — This worth while project continues 
with Dr. Tobin in charge. During this past year four- 
teen clinics were held. 

145 patients attended 
170 fillings 

53 extractions 
44 cleansings 

In conclusion, I wish to thank the teachers and the 
parents for their co-operation this past year. 

Respectfully submitted, 

MARTHA E. BLOOD, R. N.

REPORT OF THE INSPECTOR OF ANIMALS 



January 1, 1934 
To the Selectmen of Medfield: 

Gentlemen: 

I hereby submit to you my report of the past year. 

During the year I have quarantined 7 dogs, that have bitten 
various people. Six of these dogs, after being quarantined 
14 days, were examined and not showing signs of Rabies, 
were released and the owners notified. The other dog is still 
in quarantine as the usual quarantine period of 14 days has 
not elapsed. 

One bull arrived from out of state, and I reported this to 
the Division of Animal Industry. On December 22, six more 
cattle arrived from out of state and this was also reported 
to the Division of Animal Industry. 

I received orders, November 20, from the Division of Animal 
Industry, to make the complete annual inspection of all 
cattle, swine, sheep, and goats, kept in this town, this inspec- 
tion to be completed on or before December 31, 1933, which 
was done. 

During this inspection, I visited 32 stables, in which were 
kept 345 cattle, 596 swine, no sheep, and 1 goat. I also found 
the stables and cattle in very clean condition, with a few 
exceptions. 

Very truly yours, 

GEORGE S. CHENEY, 

Inspector of Animals.

REPORT OF THE CEMETERY COMMISSIONERS 



To the Honorable Board of Selectmen: 

Work was carried on in the Cemetery as usual during 
the year. 

During the coming year, the fence should be repaired 
and new working equipment purchased. We had planned 
to do the above mentioned work this year, but were not 
able to owing to financial conditions. 

We therefore, recommend an appropriation of $2,000 
for the coming year. 

Very truly yours, 

JOSEPH A. ROBERTS, 
JOHN R. MILLER, 
PETER PEDERZINI, 

Cemetery Commissioners.

In preparing the Annual Town Report for the year 
1933, methods used for previous years have generally 
been followed. It is, however, recommended that in the 
future, all financial and accounting reports follow more 
closely to the State Accounting System, and that all un- 
necessary detail and duplication be omitted in the Town 
Report. This is now being done by practically all towns 
and will result in a considerable saving of expense to the 
town in the printing of the Annual Report. 

FRANCIS M. BIBBY, 

Accountant.

Report of the Board of Fire Engineers 

December 31, 1933 
To the Honorable Board of Selectmen: 

Gentlemen : 

The Board of Fire Engineers respectfully submit the report 
of the Fire Department for the year ending Dec. 31, 1933. 
The apparatus, with the exception of the chemical truck 
which is being replaced, is in good condition. 

The total alarms for the year was 42, of which 15 were 
whistle and 27 were still. There was one call to Sherborn for 
a woods fire. These fires are classified as follows: 

Frame buildings 8 

Roof 2 

Chimney 6 

Brush and woods 15 

Grass 8 

Trucks 2 

Out of Town 1 

There was also one call on July 4, 1933, at an automobile 
accident, to drag the river at the Sherborn Line, and one call 
on September 10, 1933, to rescue a cow in a well. 

The total damage to buildings was $19,626. Insurance paid 
on these buildings was $12,626. 

The total damage and insurance paid on contents was 
$6,393.25. 

The damage to the 4 7/8 acres of woodland which was 
nearly all pine growth was $160. 

The damage to the two trucks was $175.60. 
*" There was a total of 149,550 gallons of water used from 
hydrants and 17,360 gallons used from other sources. 

Owing to the wet season, the number of fires were much less 
than in previous years. 

68 



With the unexpended balance we have been able to pur- 
chase some much needed equipment and also to purchase a 
1933 Ford chassis which we have equipped with a booster 
tank and pumps to be used at Forest Fire work. This truck 
will replace the chemical truck which is about 15 years oldf 

In conclusion, the Engineers wish to thank the townspeople 
and the members of the department for their co-operation. 

Respectfully submitted, 

ALLAN A. KINGSBURY 
EDGAR W. ALLEN 

Fire Engineers.

SEWER DEPARTMENT 



There have been two stoppages in the Sewer System, one 
on East Main Street and one on Miller Street. 

The sewer beds and also the main trunk lines have had very 
little attention this year, owing to the small appropriation. 
The main trunk lines should be flushed out, and the beds 
need to be regraded and leveled. 

We recommend an appropriation of $900.00 for the year 
1934. 

We also recommend the sum of $1,000.00 be appropriated 
to purchase about 4 acres of land owned by Gemi Catenacci 
and 21 acres owned by Daisey M. Wilbur, this land adjoins 
the present sewer beds.

LIBRARY REPORT 



To the citizens of the town of Medfield, the Trustees of the 
Memorial Public Library, respectfully submit the following 
report for the year ending December 31, 1933. 

Mrs. Nellie Keyou and Mr. A. Howard Williamson were 
elected to the board at the March election. 

The organization of the board remains the same: Dr. 
Frank H. Clough, chairman; Anne C. Donlan, secretary. 
During the year the following books were purchased: 
Non-fiction 46 

Fiction 72 

Juvenile 9 



Total 127 

We extend thanks to the following for their generous con- 
tributions : 

Dr. McGugan 12 books of fiction 

Mrs. G. S. Holmes 12 books of fiction 
We also acknowledge gratefully the bequest of $1000 from 
the late Josephine M. Spear to be known as the "Stillman J. 
Spear Fund," the interest therefrom to be used annually for 
the purchase of new books for the Library. This gift, to- 
gether with Mr. Spear's picture was accepted by the Town of 
Medfield at a Special Meeting in December, 1933. 
Circulation (exclusive of magazines) : 

Non-fiction 2,563 

Fiction 13,779 

Juvenile 4,004 



Total 20,346 

$81.61 has been turned over to the Town Treasurer for 
fines collected. 

Through aid extended by the Civil Works Administration, 
the inside of the library proper was given two coats of paint. 



102 



Also, many books were mended, re-enforced, etc. Earlier in 
the year, necessary repairs were made on the roof. 

The trustees ask for an appropriation of the sum of $2,000, 
including the dog taxes for the ensuing year. 

For the past two months the library has been opened earlier 
two days a week. This will inevitably require extra money 
for extra hours, but if it serves as a benefit to the children 
and adults of the town, our appropriation, we feel, is well 
invested. 

Respectfully submitted, 

ANNE C. DONLON, 

Secretary.

Nov. 20, 1933. 

To the Board of Selectmen 

Mr. Frank G. Haley, Chairman 
Medfleld, Massachusetts 
Gentlemen : 

I submit herewith my report of an audit of the accounts 
of the town of Medfleld, for the period from January 1, 1932 
to September 11, 1933, made in accordance with the provisions 
of Chapter 44 of the General Laws. This report is in the 
form of a report made to me by Mr. Edward H. Fenton, Chief 
Accountant of this Division. 

Very truly yours, 

THEODORE N. WADDELL 

Director of Accounts. 



Mr. Theodore N. Waddell 

Director of Accounts 

Department of Corporations and Taxation 

State House, Boston 

Sir: 

In accordance with your instructions, I have made an audit 
of the books and accounts of the town of Medfield for the 
period from January 1, 1932 to September 11, 1933, and sub- 
mit the following report thereon. 

The financial transactions, as recorded on the books of the 
several departments receiving or disbursing money for the 
town, were examined and checked. 

The books and records of the town accountant were ex- 
amined and checked with the treasurer's books and with the 
records of the several departments collecting money for the 
town. 



120 



The appropriations and transfers, as entered in the ledger, 
were checked with the town clerk's records of appropriations 
and transfers voted by the town. 

The ledger accounts were analyzed and several new ac- 
counts were added in order that the ledger might comply with 
the requirements of the system of accounts previously installed 
by the Division of Accounts. 

A balance sheet was prepared showing the financial condi- 
tion of the town as of September 11, 1933. 

The books and accounts of the town treasurer were examined 
and checked. The recorded receipts were analyzed and com- 
pared with the records in the departments collecting money 
for the town and with the other sources from which money 
was paid into the town treasury, and the payments were 
checked with the selectmen's warrants authorizing the dis- 
bursement of town funds. The bank balances were recon- 
ciled with statements furnished by the books of deposit. 

The payments of maturing debt and interest were proved 
with the amounts falling due and with the cancelled securi- 
ties on file. 

The savings bank books and securities representing the trust 
funds in the custody of the town treasurer and of the Board 
of Selectmen were examined and listed. The income was 
proved and the withdrawals were checked with the receipts 
shown in the treasurer's cash book. 

The books and accounts of the tax collector were examined 
and checked. The commitment lists were reconciled with the 
assessors' warrants, the payments to the treasurer for the 
several levies were compared with the treasurer's cash book, 
the abatements were checked with the assessors' records of 
abatements granted, and the outstanding accounts were listed 
and reconciled with the accountant's ledger accounts. 

The outstanding accounts were further verified by mailing 
notices to a number of persons whose names appeared on the 
books as owing money to the town, the replies received thereto 
indicating that the outstanding accounts, as listed, are correct. 



121 



The commitments of water charges were examined and 
checked. The recorded payments to the treasurer were com- 
pared with the treasurer's books and the outstanding accounts 
were listed. 

The town clerk's records of sporting licenses were examined 
and the payments to the State were verified with the receipts 
on file. The records of 1933 dog licenses were examined, and 
the payments to the town treasurer were checked to the treas- 
urer's cash book. The collections from 1932 dog licenses 
could not be checked because the town clerk had destroyed 
the 1932 dog license book. The destruction of public records 
may be accomplished legally only upon the authority of the 
supervisor of public records. 

The accounts of the public welfare, school, and cemetery 
departments, in addition to all other departments collecting 
money for the town, were examined and reconciled with the 
treasurer's books. 

In examining the cemetery accounts it was found that there 
were unpaid bills for sale of lots and graves amounting to $275 
and for annual care of lots amounting to $1,437. An effort 
should be made to collect these accounts, but if the charges 
for annual care are found to be uncollectible, they should be 
abated by the cemetery commissioners. 

The surety bonds of the treasurer, tax collector, town clerk, 
and water collector for the faithful performance of their duties 
were examined and found to be in proper form. 

Appended to this report, in addition to the balance sheet 
mentioned above, are tables showing a reconciliation of the 
treasurer's and tax collector's cash, summaries of the tax and 
assessment accounts, as well as tables showing the trust fund 
transactions. 

For the courtesies extended by the various town officials 
during the progress of the audit, I wish, on behalf of my as- 
sistants, and for myself, to express appreciation. 
Respectfully submitted, 

EDWARD H. FENTON, 

Chief Accountant.

A REPORT OF THE SCHOOL COMMITTEE 



To the Citizens of Med field: 

The committee submits the following report for the year 
1933: 

Last spring for some unknown reason the basement of the 
High School was flooded. The drains did not take care of the 
surplus water and it was necessary for a time that the Fire 
Department pump out said room until we could install a 
pump for that purpose, which was done at an expense of 
$68.50. This is an automatic pump and it has taken care 
of the water since. 

At the beginning of the fall term the school sessions in the 
Ralph Wheelock School advanced fifteen minutes and closed 
fifteen minutes earlier obviating the necessity of the scholars 
who came by bus waiting too long for school to open. At this 
time by rearranging the bus schedule, we were able to carry 
the children for eleven dollars ($11) a day, and for the 
months of January, February, and March, eleven dollars and 
twenty cents ($11.20) per day because of some small children 
in the extreme end of the town. 

In December, at the Ralph Wheelock School, there was in- 
stalled on the steam boiler an Automatic Vacu-Draft which 
enables us to use a small sized coal at a saving of two dollars 
and seventy cents ($2.70) a ton. We expect that less coal 
will be used. The cost of the Vacu-Draft was two hundred 
and sixty-five dollars ($265.). 

At the High School in the rooms and toilets, wherever the 
outside or skim coat of the plastering was broken, it was 
but a very short time before it became much larger and 
needed to be repaired frequently. To overcome this the com- 
mittee put out bids for the sheathing of the above. The toi- 
lets were sheathed six feet high and the rooms four feet, us- 
ing ply wood for the class rooms and sheathing for toilets. 
The carpenter work cost two hundred and ninety-eight dollars 
($298). The staining and varnishing was done by the janitor, 



166 



Mr. Sweeney, saving the school considerable cost. 

There were several new text books purchased and about 
375 old ones cleaned, repaired, and rebound. 

Book covers were procured to preserve the new and re- 
bound books. New maps and a globe were also purchased. 

As the appropriation was reduced the superintendent, 
teachers, nurse, doctor, and supervisor of drawing contributed 
10% of their wages, which the town voted to the school de- 
partment for its use. 

No School Signal 
At eight o'clock three blasts, repeated four times, will be 
sounded on such mornings as it is deemed inadvisable to 
open school. 

The committee recommends that the various reports be 
thoroughly read. 

The school committee asks for the sum of $30,000 as last 
year. 

Respectfully submitted, 
FRANK H. CLOUGH, 
EVELYN BYNG, 
HAROLD STEVENS.

REPORT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS 



To the School Committee of Medfield. 

The past year has been one of deep meaning to education 
everywhere. The effects of the depression have been felt 
more seriously by the schools of the United States than in 
most other countries. It has been estimated that expenditures 
for public schools were 600 million dollars less in 1933 than 
in 1930. Nearly 2000 rural schools in twenty-four States 
failed to open last fall; and by April 1 next perhaps one mil- 
lion pupils who did start then will be denied further schooling, 
due to exhausted budgets. 

Massachusetts has been far less seriously affected than 
most sections. Yet even here towns and cities have cut school 
expenditures in two years by 10 millions, or 13% ; there are 
1.6% more pupils and 1.4% fewer teachers in 1933 than in 
the previous year. Opportunities are reduced for music, art, 
home-making, shopwork, health, and physical education. The 
State has averaged only 98 cents per pupil for a year's books 
and $2.10 for paper and supplies. 

Medfield in turn has curtailed activities and costs, although 
(as I anticipated in my report last year) it was not possible 
to cut in as large proportion because we had never taken on 
varied activities and kinds of work which others had. Our 
Special Help class was discontinued as an economy measure 
and its pupils were distributed among the several grades. 
Mrs. Brown is taking some time from administration to 
work alternately with groups of pupils from various grades 
who need special help. This is distinctly a backward ste/p 
for both the individual pupils and the classes but is the best 
we can do. Miss Drogue was transferred to the second 
grade; and Miss Daddario took charge of the first grade 
in place of Mrs. Sullivan when her resignation became ef- 
fective. As Miss Grace Whelan she had given several years 
of very efficient service. 



176 



In the High School there have been two changes in per- 
sonnel. Miss Helen E. Barksdale replaced Miss Esther J. 
Forbes in the English department. She had had several years 
of successful experience in the high schools of Portsmouth, 
N. H., and New Britain, Conn., and these are of great value 
to our school. In September we were disappointed to have 
the sudden resignation of George W. Cosgrove, who received 
a merited promotion to the city of Lynn. He was not only 
well trained and efficient as a teacher but had fitted unusually 
well into the life of the school; with the other men he had 
been especially successful in development of enthusiasm and 
active support of athletic sports among the boys, evidenced 
by their success in the field. The Town was already respond- 
ing and the school is particularly grateful to the local Legion 
for their personal efforts and resulting financial aid last Fall. 
In his place Roger A. Hardy has entered upon the work with 
energy and we much hope that our progress in school spirit 
and town interest will continue to increase. It is a serious 
disappointment that no place can be found in town for our 
boys and girls to. play basketball. An interruption between 
football and baseball appears inevitable. 

Instruction in vocal music and chorus singing are being 
continued in all classes and groups by the same teachers and 
with the same emphasis as last year but without the weekly 
supervision of Miss Nettie F. Hamant. Miss Hamant has 
served long in our schools and has given attention to instru- 
mental as well as vocal music. A new line of effort now 
being undertaken with some promise of success and with strong 
appeal to some pupils who are not enthusiastic over other 
forms of music is the starting of school bands; this is without 
expense or responsibility to the Town or the School Committee. 

The year has been one of loyal endeavor to accomplish as 
much work and to lose as little ground as possible. The 
teachers have worked in excellent spirit. All have been 
particularly watchful of expenses. In my report last year, 
when the depression looked so hopeless and every dollar 



177 



loomed so large, I tried to show that Medfield was very 
careful in school expenditures, had never wasted money on 
new subjects, and compared favorably in costs with similar 
towns, the State, and the nation. This year the same things 
are true. Figures can easily be given to prove it. Both our 
costs and our local tax for school support have been cut; other 
towns have done the same. From our local tax alone, for the 
school year ending June 1933, we paid $74.23 per pupil; the 
State average was $82.46. Evidently there should be little 
need to argue for mere continued support of our schools as 
they now are. But here, as everywhere, schools as they now 
are do not meet the need of the present situation as it is 
rapidly changing. Here, as everywhere, there is dissatisfac- 
tion with what schools are accomplishing, and the chief prob- 
lem is the high school. When the United States Congress is 
aroused to the extent of spending $225,000 on a National 
Survey of Secondary Education, as has just been done, the 
dissatisfaction must be country-wide and not confined to 
our town or even our State. Superintendents, high school prin- 
cipals, vocational counselors, teachers are eagerly studying 
the matter; they are fully as much interested in constructive 
criticism as are dissatisfied parents and taxpayers in Med- 
field and every other town. 

The real basis of the problem is this: pupils stay longer in 
school than they did and High School graduation has become 
the expected, not the exceptional thing. Many now go to 
high school as a matter of course rather than for a special 
purpose. Our high schools in general have today twice as 
many pupils as they would have had if they had simply kept 
pace with the growth in population during the last ten years. 
This means that fifty percent of those now in high schools 
would not have attended them ten 3^ears ago. Some now 
come because they cannot find work; but this began even 
before the depression. Some come because their homes wish 
it; some because it is easier than to strike out for them- 
selves; some, perhaps, so as to get " white collar jobs." The 



178 



N. R. A. at a stroke barred from industry and sent back to 
school all under sixteen. It is clear at all events that their 
homes wish these people to have four years of high school 
and that the taxpayers wish to offer it; but they themselves 
often do not know why they want it. We offer them now 
nothing we did not offer ten years ago ; but Algebra and Latin 
are no more attractive now than to those who then dropped 
out. It is still no more true that all high school pupils can 
succeed in the classical course than that all can 
profit by a college course; not all should take the commercial 
or vocational course any more than all could profitably follow 
a skilled trade or fill an executive business position. Nor is 
it desirable. It follows that those pupils do not find in the 
present courses enough things which they consider worth 
doing; they see no use in really mastering what we offer, 
so do not set themselves to do it; they aim to "get by" or to 
"be passed." They are in the same classes with those others 
who do take responsibility for study and home work and 
aim at mastery; they need more study than those — they do 
less. Thus they, themselves drop behind and they hinder 
their more ambitious mates. They must be pushed and even 
be disciplined to keep from disorder and lawlessness. We 
have them in our high school; so do other small high schools; 
also large high schools and vocational schools to which 
towns like Norfolk and Westwood send their pupils; 
so do many, many high schools just now reporting 
to the High School Principals' Association. Some 
teachers would forcibly remove from school pupils who do 
not make a business of their high school work and who there- 
fore clog the system. Why, they say, should a town pay high 
costs for them? But if so removed, to what can they turn? 
Some teachers would retain and encourage them and provide 
for them different school opportunities which they will recog- 
nize as worth their best efforts. If "public education is a de- 
vice for preparing children for successful living under the 
conditions which confront them it must change as conditions 



179 






change economically, socially, politically," The new Super- 
intendent of New York City schools says, most concisely: 
"No pupil hereafter must leave the high schools of New York 
unable to understand the front page of his newspaper. . . 
we've got to get hold of Johnny Jones and fit him for his 
world and for his time. . . ." 

What should Medfield do in order to have a school in which 
all pupils who ought to be encoraged to attend may find what 
they consider worth their while? Neither Medfield nor its 
teachers will be satisfied until some way can be found to make 
its high school challenge the whole-hearted effort of all pupils 
who want to attend. There should be, of course, opportunity 
for various phases of manual work and domestic science; but 
that is for the present quite out of the question. There should 
be change of emphasis in courses that we already have, so 
that the occupations and interests of our own homes in every- 
day life may be better understood, appreciated, and shared; 
it will mean less facts of past history perhaps, more of the 
progress and meaning of present events surely. It will mean 
more attention to what we read and do in the probably in- 
creased hours when we do not have to toil. It will mean 
personal interest and support and effort — from homes, teach- 
ers, pupils. It will mean that most pupils work either more 
at home or longer at school; it may mean a school day more 
like the work day, with all study in the school session; if not 
that then there must be more "home work" than most do at 
present. Now if a pupil does not do school work at home 
he cannot make the personal progress he should; he hinders 
the class progress; and, worst of all, he is in a measure re- 
sponsible for an unsatisfactory school. Many homes will 
find here the answer to their adverse criticism of the high 
school. 

This "change of emphasis" in school courses and subjects 
may best be shown by a program of studies, based on a 
program actually in use long enough to be tested in North 
Andover; this shows more clearly the relation of school work 



180 



to advanced schools and to life. It is almost wholly a re- 
arrangement of the work we are now doing, with clearer 
emphasis on the meanings. It is given here with the recom- 
mendation that we at once plan to put it in operation next 
September. Choices, of entire course or of subjects for any 
year of the course, may be made by pupils of any year in 
high school without hindering their prospects or plans. It 
is worthy of careful study.

This social Arts Course is a slight modification of the 
general course which we already have in our school. It would 
seem as though we should add, as circumstances permit, some 
work along manual lines or possibly give some school credit 
for work taken by correspondence or done, as music is done, 
outside the school. 

This course is recommended for the majority of pupils for 
the following reasons: 

Preparation for life: This course provides a civic, scientific, 
and cultural preparation for a life of active, intelligent citi- 
zenship. 

Preparation for college: Colleges are now tending to be 
more interested in the scholarship standards, work habits, and 
personality of candidates than in the particular group of 
High School subjects which have been studied. The majority 
of pupils that are barred from college are barred on the basis 
of scholarship requirements rather than on failure to have 
chosen particular courses in High School subject requirements. 
The mental ability and industry of the pupil himself must 
supply the desired scholarship requirements.

This group of colleges is gradually growing smaller because 
of the growing tendency to be less academical in entrance 
requirements. 

I cannot sum up the situation more forcefully than has 
Deputy Commissioner Wright in his radio address, December 
28, 1933. 

". . . Closely related ... is the practical abolition 
of child labor under sixteen years of age through the adoption 
of the industrial codes. In times of normal business, hundreds 
of thousands of children from 14 to 16 years of age were out 
of school and in industry, many of them because there was 



188 



nothing in the school program of interest to them. It is gen- 
erally believed that these children will never again be em- 
ployed in industry. This means that all children up to six- 
teen years of age are to be in school on a full-time basis. We 
have, in this fact, compelling argument for the immediate 
restoration to the curriculum of the so-called fads and frills 
as a means of meeting the needs of the non-academic type of 
pupil who is being sent back to school, even in this depression 
year, to the extent of 100,000 pupils. Any school system that 
abates the emphasis on music, art, homemaking, shopwork, 
and health and physical education at a time when thousands 
of motor-minded children are returning to school is creating 
for itself an educational problem of the first magnitude. 

"It is very clear that greatly increased amounts of leisure 
time are to be the possession of all in the future. The thirty 
or even the forty-hour week has great significance for public 
education. He is very short-sighted who does not see the re- 
lation between the short working day and week and increased 
emphasis upon music and art in home and community life. 
That man who sees no value in shopwork and manual train- 
ing for vocational and avocational uses in an age that starts 
its motors, as was done at the Century of Progress Exposi- 
tion, with the light rays from the star Arcturus, has his edu- 
cational concepts illuminated by a kerosene lamp. We cannot 
live mechanically in 1933 and go back educationally to 1883. 
We must have an educational system adjusted to the new 
social and economic order and that means more and better 
education for more of our people. The way out is not through 
a crippled and handicapped school system. . . . 

". . . The child of today must be educated to live in 
a social order marked by the closest interdependence. This 
means a new emphasis upon training for citizenship through 
practice. The new education must produce citizens who un- 
derstand better the society in which they live. . . . 

"We are learning painfully today that we pay, soon or late, 
for what we need in social or civic life whether we purchase 



189 



it or not. Restricted or denied educational opportunities for 
youth now means increased custodial and correctional care 
by the State in the future. Failure to provide opportunities 
for health and recreation for youth today means greater in- 
stitutional expenditure by the State tomorrow. Unrealized 
possibilities in character training in the schools of the pres- 
ent will take a heavy toll from the wealth of the nation in the 
years that lie ahead. The cost of ignorance in a democratic 
society is always greater than the cost of education. In the 
end, in one form or another, we shall have to pay the bill for 
what we need. Ours is the decision as to whether we shall 
make the expenditure now in the form of good schools, ade- 
quate playgrounds, and essential health service for children, 
or pay later in the form of correctional and institutional care 
at a cost much greater. 

"This is an appropriate time to reaffirm our belief in a state- 
ment made by a great son of Massachusetts, Horace Mann, 
nearly a century ago when he said: 'The property of this 
Commonwealth is pledged to the education of all its youth up 
to such a point as will save them from poverty and vice and 
adequately prepare them for the performance of their social 
and civic duties!' . . ." 

For all loyal and faithful co-operation of all with whom my 
service is associated I offer my hearty thanks. 
Respectfully submitted, 

LYMAN R. ALLEN.

REPORT OF HIGH SCHOOL PRINCIPAL 

December 31, 1933. 
Mr. Lyman R. Allen 
Superintendent of Schools 
Sir, 

I submit herewith my report as principal of the high school 
for the year 1933. 

The year as a whole has been very successful with a fine 
spirit of co-operation among teachers and pupils. The mem- 
bership of the school stays fairly constant at around 150 pu- 
pils. This year, due to economic conditions, we have a larger 
number of post-graduates than usual. Four have been taking 
regular work since September, two come in for special sub- 
jects, and two others started the year but left as soon as they 
found something else to do. No special classes are formed 
for these pupils, but they are fitted into the regular classes. 
In this way there is practically no extra expense connected 
with post-graduates. 

Attendance has been good, although there is still more 
tardiness than there should be. 

In athletics the year has not been so successful as the 
preceding year was. As good players graduate, it takes some 
I time to develop others to take their places. We owe much to 
Mr. Kenefick, to Mr. Cosgrove, and to his successor, Mr. 
Hardy, for the amount of time which they have devoted to 
I the athletic interests of the boys outside of the regular school 
! hours without any extra compensation. Miss Chisholm de- 
serves the same credit for her work with the girls. The school 
i is also greatly indebted to the Beckwith Post of the American 
Legion for the sum of money which was raised at a dance 
1 this fall and given to the schools for athletic equipment. With 
'this money a set of three soccer and two basketballs were 
I bought for the Ralph Wheelock School, two playground balls 
were bought for the Junior High, and the remainder was 
i spent on football equipment. 



191 



In June a class of 19 was graduated with appropriate ex- 
ercises, the program for which will be found appended to 
this report. The success of this program again emphasizes 
the wisdom of the change from the old type of graduation 
program. 

' Two members of this class are attending Simmons College; 
one is attending Regis College; and two others are training 
for the nursing profession. Three are taking post graduate 
work here. We have at present 20 recent graduates of our 
high school studying in schools of college grade. Within the 
last four years 19 of our graduates have completed courses 
in schools of college grade. This is approximately 27 percent 
of the total graduates of the past eight years. Our course of 
study as at present organized caters almost entirely to this 
27 per cent. The traditional subjects of the high school course 
(algebra, geometry, Latin, French, etc.) were organized for 
the group fitting themselves for professional life, because 
when high schools were started no one went to high school 
except this group. The large increase in high school member- 
ship in the last twenty-five years has brought in a large 
percentage of pupils who do not need and can not really 
profit much by the study of these traditional subjects. These 
pupils in the present day school are very likely to be misfits, 
not because they cannot learn, but because they do not find 
in the courses offered, those things which they find it worth 
their while to do. They simply cannot foresee any possible 
occasion in later life when such studies will be of value to 
them. It seems to be an accepted fact that the people of New 
England desire to furnish a high schol education for all 
children. Why should not the course of study in our high 
schools be changed to meet the needs of all children? We 
have introduced much social science — civics, economics, etc. — 
and much natural science, but are still trying to drag through 
traditional courses in algebra, geometry, Latin, and French 
many pupils who should never take these subjects. It is a 
significant fact that there is a much greater percentage of 



192 






failures in these latter subjects than in the social and natural 
sciences. I think that the time has come when serious thought 
should be given to the question of revision of our entire course 
of study to take care of that large proportion of our pupils 
who are not destined for college. Very little in the school 
course of today serves to fit a person to use properly and 
profitably that large amount of leisure time which changing 
economic conditions have apparently brought permanently 
to our working people. 

In conclusion, I wish to thank you and the members of the 
School Committee for all the kind assistance rendered during 
the year. 

Respectfully submitted, 

ALTON H. HARTFORD, Principal 



REPORT OF DRAWING SUPERVISOR 



To the Superintendent of Schools: 

I am pleased to submit my annual report as drawing su- 
pervisor in the Medfield schools. 

Last year the grades showed gain in originality and free- 
dom of expression. The town made a fine showing in the 
S. P. C. A. poster contest, winning nineteen medals and 
magazine subscriptions. All other poster contests were omitted, 
in the interests of economy, as large poster board is expensive. 

The final exhibition was held in the Ralph Wheelock 
building on May twenty-first. Although a serious attempt was 
made all the year to use smaller and less expensive paper, the 
results received favorable comment from many people. 

Due to the change in the time of starting school in the 
grammar building this fall, we are able to arrange a better 
program for the grades, so that the supervisor has more time 
in each room. Children who work a little more slowly than 
average have more chance to get help. There is also more 



193 



time to discuss the next lesson with the teacher, which im- 
proves the work between the supervisor's visits. 

Altogether, the grade work is progressing steadily. We are 
all proud of the children's work in drawing. 

All the high school work dropped in value last year, as it 
was necessary to share the room with the special class. Since 
September we have had the place to ourselves again and much 
more progress has been made. We made it as attractive as 
possible with new curtains, paint, etc., and although most of 
the classes are crowded, we get along very nicely. It is not 
unusual for ten or more pupils to come back after school 
and work until four o'clock or later. This extra work is worth 
while and should be encouraged. 

A rule was made last year to admit only Juniors and Seniors 
to the mechanical drawing class. We found that the younger 
boys filled the room otherwise and they needed so much 
attention that there was no time for the older group who 
choose the subject for practical and definite reasons. They 
grasp it and go ahead so much faster after having geometry 
that it is better to wait until then. Parents should advise one 
year of freehand drawing first whenever possible for best re- 
sults. Boys who started as Freshmen and wish to take it 
this year have been given an opportunity to take a corres- 
pondence course in school time. In view of these changes, 
great improvement is to be expected in this part of the work 
from now on. 

Medfield is to be congratulated for the splendid work of 
the School Committee, whose fairness and consideration have 
given the teachers an incentive to keep their standards high. 
I thank them and all others who have made it possible for 
the children to continue this valuable part of their school 
training and I hope for wisdom to make it even more worth 
while in the future. 

Sincerely submitted, 

EVELYN H. JUDD.

REPORT OF SCHOOL PHYSICIAN 



To the Superintendent of Schools: 

Routine examination of the pupils was completed early in 
October and reports sent home on the following: 

Enlarged or diseased tonsils 30 

Enlarged glands 12 

Heart conditions 4 

Chronic ear disease 1 

Hardened wax in ears 2 

Scabies 3 

Impetigo 6 

It is of interest to note how closely these figures approxi- 
mate those of preceding years, indicating of course that many 
of these have been previously reported, but have returned to 
school this year with the condition uncorrected. 

The teeth of the children are on the whole in a satisfactory 
condition, the noticeable improvement from the work of the 
dental clinic still being in evidence. The dental work should 
be continued if this improvement is to be continued, particu- 
larly during these months of meager wages. As the Red Cross 
has funds available for this work it is to be hoped that it may 
be resumed this Spring. Parents, however, must co-operate 
to the extent of paying the small fees charged, which are de- 
signed to cover the costs of materials used. 

Schick tests made last February showed the results of the 
toxin-anti-toxin inoculations to be perfect. Not one of these 
children gave a reaction showing a susceptibility to diphtheria. 
This work of immunization against diphtheria will be con- 
tinued this year. 

Respectfully submitted, 

H. L. PARK, M. D.

REPORT OF SCHOOL NURSE 



To the Superintendent of Schools: 

I hereby submit my annual report for the Town of Medfield. 

During this past year the health of the school children has 
been exceptionally good, except for an epidemic of whooping 
cough this fall. This is due largely to the intelligent care 
given them by their parents. More thought is given to the 
care and training of our pre-school child, preparing him phys- 
ically and mentally to compete with others and to resist the 
hazards to which he is exposed. Most children learn good 
health habits by growing up in an environment where good 
health habits are practiced. One cannot tell a child in school 
to do certain things and expect to have them done when they 
go contrary to the customs of family life. 

I am sorry that we have no dental report for this year as 
yet, but we expect to conduct dental clinics as in the past, 
when funds are available. 

I have assisted Dr. Park in his annual physical examina- 
tions, and have made home visits when the need occurred. 

The Chadwick Clinic was held in March. This clinic is held 
under the supervision of the State Department of Health for 
further check-up of children who have been exposed to tuber- 
culosis. Each child has an X-ray of his chest and a thor- 
ough physical examination by physicians well trained for 
this type of work. 

Children recommended for re-examination 10 

Children re-examined 8 

Children found improved 8 

Children X-rayed 9 

New cases examined 2

Pre-school Clinic. 

The parents have accepted what was an experiment six 
years ago — the examining of incoming first-grade children in 
May. The direct results of this are shown by the improved 
physical conditions in our lower grade. Early correction of 
physical defects reduces the risk the child has of infections. 
Each child attending the clinic also is immunized against 
diphtheria. Approximately three-quarters of our children in 
the first grade are immunized. 

I want to thank parents and teachers and the School Com- 
mittee for their splendid co-operation during the past year. 
We are all interested and aiming for better health or that 
quality of life which renders the individual fit to live most 
and serve best. 

Respectfully submitted, 

MARTHA E. BLOOD, R. N.

REPORT OF THE INSPECTOR OF ANIMALS 

January 1, 1935 
To the Selectmen of Medfield: 

Gentlemen : 

I hereby submit my annual report for the past year. 

About the first of March 1934, a dog was reported sick 
and sent to the Dog Hospital. This dog died in a short 
time and upon laboratory examination his brain showed 
he had had Rabies. This dog had traveled about the neigh- 
borhood quite a bit and had been in contact with ten other 
dogs, all of which were promptly quarantined. These quar- 
antined dogs did not contract Rabies and after the required 
length of time were released. 

During the rest of the -year I also quarantined seven 
other dogs which had bitten eight different people. After 
fourteen days I examined these dogs and as they showed 
no signs of Rabies I released them. 

I received orders December 20, 1934, from the Director 
of Livestock Disease Control (formerly the Division of 
Animal Industry), to make a complete inspection of the 
condition of all stables and cattle, swine, sheep and goats 
kept in this town, inspection to be completed on or before 
January 30, 1935, which was done. 

In this inspection I visited 32 stables, in which were 
kept 360 cattle, 493 swine, no sheep, and 1 goat. I found 
the majority of the cattle and stables in clean condition, 
with the usual few exceptions. 

Very truly yours, 

GEORGE S. CHENEY, 

Inspector of Animals

REPORT OF THE BOARD OF FIRE ENGINEERS 



December 31, 1934 
To the Honorable Board of Selectmen : 
Gentlemen : 

The Board of Fire Engineers respectfully present the 
report of the Fire Department for the year ending Decem- 
ber 31, 1934. 

Apparatus 

The apparatus of the department consists of four pieces 
as follows : one Seagraves pump, one Reo pump, one hose 
truck, and one forest fire truck. The apparatus is in good 
mechanical condition and requires no extensive repairs. 

Hose 

There is at present 2100 feet of 2y 2 inch hose in the de- 
partment; also 800 feet of \y 2 inch hose. An additional 
500 feet of 2y 2 inch hose should be purchased the coming 
year. Some of the 2y 2 inch hose now being used is over 
eleven years old and is in rather poor condition. 

Fire Prevention 

Consistent attention to fire prevention has been con- 
tinued as an important part of fire department work. Dur- 
ing the past year several water holes have been constructed 
in remote parts of the town. These will prove to be ex- 
tremely useful should fire occur in the vicinity. This 
work was made possible through the co-operation of the 
ERA of Massachusetts. 



16 



Drills 

The Fire Chief's Club of Massachusetts at its annual 
-meeting on May 17, 1933, adopted a plan to provide funda- 
mental training to as many of the firemen in the state as 
possible. The plan was particularly designed to reach the 
small towns and villages where volunteer firemen operate 
necessarily without the benefit of local drill towers. We 
-are proud to say that four members of the department have 
completed the course of instructions given at the training 
school in Brookline, Massachusetts. 

Fire Loss 

Fire prevention work is encouraged by the exceptionally 
low fire loss of the year which is estimated at a total of 
but $2,988.50 on buildings and contents. 

Recommendations 

The Board recommends an appropriation of $3000 for 
the year 1935 ; also an appropriation of $600 to be used for 
the purchase of 500 feet of 2y 2 inch hose. 

Summary for the Year 

The total of alarms for the year was 62 of which 26 
were whistle and 36 were still. There were eight out-of- 
town calls as follows : five to Dover, two to Millis, and one' 
to Walpole. 

The amount of hose used during the year was 7200 feet. 
The number of gallons of water used from hydrants was 
-61,950 and 29,000 gallons used from other sources. 

There was a total of 62 fires during the year classified 
.as follows : 

Frame buildings 14 

Woods, brush and grass 37 

Automobiles 3 

Chimney 5 



17 



Oil stoves 2 

Hay 1 

The insurance paid on buildings was $309.75 ; one settle- 
ment has not been made as yet. The damage to and in- 
surance paid on contents was $259.50. 

The Engineers wish to thank the townspeople and mem- 
bers of the Fire Department for their co-operation. 

Respectfully submitted, 

ALLAN A. KINGSBURY, Chief, 
EDGAR W. ALLEN, Ass't Chief, 

Fire Engineers

REPORT OF THE WATER AND SEWERAGE BOARD 



Water Department 

During- the year Ave have added 12 new water takers. 



i b 



In March the frost had gone down deep enough in the 
ground to freeze 12 services and one six-inch water main 
on Elm Street for a distance of 300 feet. One of the services 
froze twice and in order to prevent them from freezing 
again we had to keep a small stream of water running 
for the whole month of March which made a large water 
bill for that month. 

Owing to considerable complaint about water in the dead 
ends tasting bad, we had to relieve the situation by con- 
necting bleeders on four dead ends. This seemed to meet 
with favorable results. 

As every gallon of water used by the Fire, Highway, 
Tree and Sewer Departments must be paid for out of this 
appropriation, and in order to be fully covered, we ask for 
an appropriation of $6000. 

Respectfully submitted,

Sewer Department 

Owing to the assistance of the CWA and ERA, we have 
built two new sewer beds, underdrained and regraded 
the old beds. This gives us adequate amount of sewer dis- 
posals to take care of all our present and future needs. 

We have also purchased 25 acres of meadow land and a 
gravel pit which have proven a great asset for use of the 
sewer beds. By purchase of this land it saves us a rental 
of $50.00 per year. 

This year we would like to flush out our main trunk 
lines as they have been badly neglected and tree roots are 
beginning to cause stoppages. 

In order to carry out the work this year, we ask for an 
appropriation of $1000. 

Respectfully submitted, 

IRA F. PENNIMAN, 
FRED A. SMITH, 
PETER PEDERZINI, .

REPORT OF THE CEMETERY COMMISSIONERS 



To the Honorable Board of Selectmen : 

The usual routine work was carried on in the cemetery 
as has been done in previous years. 

We would like to purchase and erect a fence that would 
start near the pond and follow the boundary line to Bridge 
Street continuing- along Dale Street joining the present- 
good pieces of fencing. 

A fence of this kind would prevent animals from roam- 
ing onto our lots. 

^e therefore recommend an appropriation of $2500. 

Respectfully submitted, 

JOSEPH A. ROBERTS, 
JOHN R. MILLER,

A REPORT OF THE SCHOOL COMMITTEE 



To the Citizens of Medfield : 

The committee submits the following report for the 
year 1934: 

During the school year of 1934, five teachers resigned 
and the opening of school in September saw five new 
members added to our staff. 

The committee feels that the work of our schools has 
been increasingly effective in spite of the economic strain 
of the past two or three years. 

Mr. A. H. Williamson was elected to our School Board 
at the annual election of Town Officers in March to re- 
place Mrs. Byng who felt that she could not give the 
necessary time from her other many activities. 

During the Fall term it became necessary to repair and 
renew a considerable part of the plwmbing facilities at the 
Ralph Wheelock Building. 

The committee has started an Opportunity Class at the 
Wheelock School, in charge of a young man, Mr. Allison, 
who has had a wide and varied experience in many lines 
of work. The object of this class is to give to those boys 
who do not succeed well with their book study, a chance to 
do something that may interest them and broaden their 
outlook as to the opportunities of our present day. The 
class is to be kept small so that individual attention may 
be given to each pupil. 

Having in mind the necessity of curtailing expenses to 
the limit, the committee is asking for the sum of $29,500 
for the coming year. 

Respectfully submitted, 

FRANK H. CLOUGH, 

HAROLD F. STEVENS, 

A. HOWARD WILLIAMSON.

REPORT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS 



To the School Committee of Medfield : 

The year just closed has seen a number of changes in our 
teaching force. Mr. Kenefick, who had been with us for 
over three years, resigned in July to take a larger posi- 
tion in his home town of Norwood ; his Avork was quiet 
and effective in his classes and in athletics, and we were 
sorry to lose him. In his place we were fortunate in se- 
curing Robert D. Russell, a graduate of Tufts and a nat- 
ural leader of pupils of High school age. Miss Benedict, 
our teacher of Latin and English since 1929, left, us at the 
same time to be married; Miss Anne H. Gray, a graduate 
of Boston University with experience in high school work, 
succeeded her. Miss Barksdale, also married, was re- 
placed by Miss Elsie E. W. Davis, a teacher of wide ex- 
perience and excellent training. The Ralph Wheelock 
school at the same time lost two teachers — Miss Evelyn 
Oliver, after four years in Grade V, and Miss Katherine 
M. Drogue from the second grade. Miss Mary E. Gal- 
lant, trained at Worcester and Boston Teachers' Colleges, 
and Miss Alice C. Murphy of Framingham Teachers' Col- 
lege were engaged in their places. 

Such extensive changes are apt to cause interruptions in 
school work and are to be avoided. However, the teach- 
ers secured have begun work with exceptional skill and 
enthusiasm and school spirit and co-operation are notably 
strong in both schools. Rarely have conditions been more 
promising for a strong year's work than they are at pres- 
ent. Better results are already apparent. Medfield may 
feel pride in her schools ; and the united appreciation and 
support of all our public will be of utmost help. At the 
same time the town should understand something of the 

54 



limitations under which we are working and the problems 
which demand solution. 

In his report a year ago the Principal of the high school 
showed the needs of modification and supplementing of 
the courses of study offered and the fact that the needs 
of the minority of pupils who do go to college should not 
•dictate the offerings to the great majority who do not. 
For the State at large only 15% of its high school grad- 
uates go to college, as will appear in a forthcoming report 
-of a committee on courses for small high schools. They 
are recommending distinct modifications in the interest of 
the majority. Even the colleges admit this need and 
during the past year accelerating changes in their attitude 
toward entrance requirements are evident. It is not now 
necessary to offer all the subjects of the former classical 
curriculum— as the advanced Latin and mathematics ; many 
things more needed by most will be accepted. There are 
indications even, that soon any serious, worth-while sub- 
ject, certified as well and successfully done by the high 
school, will be acceptable. Such changes leave us freer 
to develop curricula and subjects valuable to the majority. 
We are making changes gradually and studying the sug- 
gestions of the committee mentioned. 

However, Avhen we seek to make such changes we are 
~met by limitations of our present buildings and equip- 
ment. While relatively new and soundly built, our high 
school lacks provision for social training of an adequate 
assembly hall ; the physical, health, and athletic training 
of a gymnasium ; shops for Foods, Clothing, Manual and 
Industrial work, Drawing ; and a suitable library. We 
have now nearly the maximum number of pupils for which 
the building was planned; and often we have eight recita- 
tions where there are but seven recitation rooms, making 
added use of the library alcove in the corridor. 

Large classes are in prospect in the Ralph Wheelock 
School. They now average 38, with a first grade of 45. 

55 



These numbers are too large for the best work but trie- 
rooms can hold a considerable normal increase before the 
State law actually requires division or the provision of 
assistance for the teachers. We should be able at the 
Wheelock School to go on for an indefinite period, al- 
though, perhaps with minor alterations of some rooms. 

It is evident that a sudden increase in our numbers,, 
or changes in legislation which would hold longer in school: 
such older pupils as now leave at sixteen, or the introduc- 
tion of kinds of work which might attract them to re- 
main longer would cramp us first and most seriously at- 
the high school. It may be advisable to investigate now 
the possibility of federal assistance Jn building — how long 
and to what extent it is available — and the feasibility of 
adding a second story to our present plant or extending it. 
in bungalow form. 

In athletics our boys have done remarkably well under 
all the circumstances; the}' had good seasons in baseball 
and football ; but there is no place for basketball. The 
girls have found little opportunity for organized activities. 
Pitching horse-shoes in the field back of the school was 
enthusiastically enjoyed after the football season, the girls 
joining in this sport. We would undertake wrestling but 
for the expense of the floor mats required. The pupils have 
raised all the money used for athletics but are unable to 
undertake larger costs. It would be an investment, not 
an expense, for Medfield to help in this problem. Suitable 
physical and athletic opportunities make for the physical 
control and health of the growing boy and girl; for the 
development of courage, self-reliance, competition, and co- 
operation ; for individual and social mental development; 
for the habits of success and the meaning of honorable de- 
feat; and even for same conditions of body and mind con- 
ducive to hard, successful study. All this is as true and 
as much needed in small as in large city school conditions.. 



56 



The matter of school costs 1 have not emphasized. Med- 
field is heavily taxed, but nevertheless, wishes to do all it 
can for its pupils. We cannot expect to accomplish as 
much with small per-pupil appropriations as other places 
do with larger ones, further reductions would seriously 
cripple us. Our gross expenditure and our net cost, after

ations be made on the basis of knowledge. For all confi- 
dence and support I have had from you as members of the 
School Committee, and from my co-workers, the teachers 
and from the pupils and townspeople I return my sincere: 
thanks.

REPORT OF THE HIGH SCHOOL PRINCIPAL 



To the Superintendent of Schools : 

I submit herewith my report as principal of the high 
school for the year 1934. 

In June a class of 19 was graduated. The program of 
graduation is given herewith. 

Of this graduating class, nine are continuing their edu- 
cation at advanced schools or by correspondence. 

This year's senior class is smaller, and an entering class 
of about 38 next fall should bring our total membership 
from the 153 of this year to approximately 175 for next 
year. This will certainly be the case if, as now seems prob- 
able, the compulsory school age is raised to 18 years. 

The program of courses as suggested in the report of 
last year is being adopted without too abrupt a change. 
Several courses have been broadened to include more gen- 
eral and more modern material. In this connection it is 
interesting to note that the colleges are growing more and 
more liberal in the material which they will accept for 
entrance credit. But while they are liberalizing their 
entrance requirements so far as subjects are concerned, 
they are placing more and more emphasis on the high 
school record and personality of candidates for entrance. 
This means that mental ability, habits of study, persever- 
ance, ability to think, and ability to work on their own 
initiative instead of being prodded, are the things which 
count most. No pupil should attempt to enter college un- 
less during his high school course, he has been able and 
willing to do better than and more than average work. 



59 



In no case can a pupil be recommended for entrance to 
college unless his marks in all the subjects required by that 
college are of at least B grade. 

The morale and spirit of loyalty in the school is pro- 
gressively better this year than before. Attendance, espe- 
cially in the matter of tardiness, has been improved. The 
student council is taking the responsibility for many of the 
activities outside the class-room and is getting the support 
of the pupils in this work much better than ever before. 
The council is taking care of traffic problems, corridor and 
lunch period discipline, assemblies, social affairs, etc. 
Through the work of the council Ave are getting the stu- 
dent body to realize that the reputation of the school de- 
pends largely upon themselves, and that the more they are 
able and willing to assume the responsibility for their con- 
duct and study habits, the better the school will be. 

In closing I wish to thank you and the School Committee 
for your kind assistance during the year. 

Respect full}' submitted, 

ALTON H. HARTFORD.

REPORT OF THE DRAWING SUPERVISOR 



To the Superintendent of Schools : 

I am submitting my report as supervisor of drawing in 
the Medfield Schools. 

Public school art reflects increasingly the growing de- 
mand in art for broad planes of color and simplicity of 
design with less, elaboration, adornment, and detail ; hence 
Ave are now drawing larger, more vigorous figures in our 
illustrations, with broad, free, colorful strokes of crayon 
and large brushfuls of paint. If the casual observers think 
we have too much freedom in this work, they should note 
the child's enjoyment in creating, his quick response to 
new problems, his enthusiasm for the art periods and his 
constant desire to make pictures in connection with his 
other school work. 

The Medfield schools have lost less than most, during the 
depression, thanks to the wisdom of those people in control 
of the situation. 

There has been growth in interest and skill in all the 
high school classes during the past year since a room has 
again been available at the Ralph Wheelock School. How- 
ever, it has entailed the long walk across the town. There 
can be no possible criticism of these pupils' actions or 
accomplishments while in the drawing classes ; we have all 
looked forward to these periods and many pupils have 
come back regularly for extra work after school, but we 
expect soon to find a still better place for this work at the 
high school.- 

The mechanical class is better in every way since limit- 
ing the course to Juniors and Seniors. We find they do 



61 



better work with a year of free hand drawing as a founda- 
tion,- and of course geometry helps too. 

The grades improve steadily. This year, we are making 
a great effort to have our drawing outlines correspond 
more accurately with the work of the Boston public 
schools, especially in design. Their fine* course has taken 
over thirty years to complete, so we ought to try to adapt 
some of it to our small schools. It takes time and planning 
to work this in without spoiling some of the best work on 
our old outlines, but some progress is being made every 
month towards this goal. The cooperation of the teachers 
is helping this work, though it means extra time and study 
for them. 

Our June exhibition Avas held as usual, and well attended. 

The children won 18 prizes in the S. P. C. A. contest, last 
March. 

I am grateful to all who helped make this year successful. 

Sincerely submitted, 

EVELYN H. JUDD.

REPORT OF THE SCHOOL PHYSICIAN 



To the Superintendent of Schools : 

The routine physical examinations of the pupils have 
been completed and it is most gratifying to report a com- 
plete absence of impetigo, scabies (itch), and pediculosis 
(lice). These three easily contracted conditions have been 
troublesome in the past and their entire absence thus far 
this year demonstrates results from the developing of good 
liealth habits. 

Defects as noted and reported to parents were as follows : 

Enlarged or diseased tonsils . 34 

Enlarged glands 13 

Heart murmurs . . 8 

Hardened wax in ears 3 

Chronic ear disease 2 

Spinal curvature 1 

The response to these reports and the efforts made by 
the parents to eliminate or improve these faults have been 
better than usual. 

The teeth of the children are for the most part in very 
good condition — the result of the dental clinics held during 
the past two years. However, it is much to be desired that 
these clinics continue in order that these truly excellent 
conditions may be lasting. 

Our effort to maintain a high percentage of immunity to 
diphtheria among the children is being continued each year 
at the pre-school clinic where toxin-anti-toxin is adminis- 
tered to all who desire it. 

Respectfully submitted, 

H. L. PARK. M.D.

REPORT OF THE SCHOOL NURSE 



To the Superintendent of Schools : 

I hereby submit my annual report for the Town of 
Medfield. 

Medfield shared in the wave of minor epidemics last win- 
ter. During the earl)* months of 1934 we had several cases 
of whooping cough. In the spring this was followed with 
measles and this fall with chicken-pox. Very fortunately 
Ave had no serious after-effects with these various diseases. 

The Chadwick clinic was held in March. This clinic was 
held under the supervision of the State Department of 
Health for further check up of children who have been ex- 
posed to tuberculosis. Each child has an X-ray of his chest 
and a thorough physical examination by physicians well 
trained for this type of work. Nine of the twelve recom- 
mended were re-examined and found improved. Four new 
cases were examined here or at the Xorfolk County 
Hospital. 

At the summer Health Camp at Braintree one of our 
boys spent eight weeks. He came home well rested and 
his general condition improved. This is a worthy use of 
funds raised by the Christmas Seal Sales. 

At the Pre-School Clinic, held in May, twenty-four chil- 
dren were examined by Dr. Park and a few minor defects 
found. As a result of this physical examination some of 
these defects were corrected and the children are in a better 
physical condition. At the same time thirty-three children 
were immunized to diphtheria, in co-operation with the 
Visiting Nursing Association. 



64 



DENTAL CLINIC 

We were able to conduct only four dental clinics this 
past year and we tried to take the most urgent and needy 
cases. Fifty-seven pupils were treated, with a total of 
eighty extractions, fillings, and cleansings. All children 
need dental care and we hope we can again offer it to those 
who would otherwise not have it. 

Through the various activities the school may accom- 
plish a great deal to maintain and improve the health of 
the school child, and to educate him to care for his own 
health. 

Routine class room inspections have been made, also 
home visits whenever necessary. 

I want to thank the parents and teachers for their co- 
operation this past year. 

Respectfully submitted, 

MARTHA E. BLOOD, R.N.

REPORT OF THE INSPECTOR OF ANIMALS 



January 1, 1936 

To the Honorable Board of Selectmen: 

Gentlemen : 

I hereby submit my annual report for the past year. 

During the year I quarantined nine dogs which had 
bitten nine different people, and after fourteen days I 
examined these dogs for signs of Rabies, of which they 
showed none and I released them. 

I received orders November 20, 1935, from the Director 
of Livestock Disease Control, to make a complete inspec- 
tion of the condition of all stables and cattle, swine, 
sheep, and goats in this town, inspection to be completed 
on or before January 1, 1936, which has been done. I 
visited thirty-three stables, in which were kept three 
hundred and sixty-three cattle, six hundred and forty 
swine, three sheep, and no goats. I found these stables 
and animals nearly one hundred per cent clean. 

The cattle are tested for tuberculosis at least once a 
year and we have not had a reactor in this town for over 
three years. 

Very truly yours, 

GEORGE S. CHENEY, 

Inspector of Animals

The following officers took the State Police course, "Police

There were 2 runaway horses caught by Officer Chick 
after having accidents and returned to owner. 

There was a place of business entered during the night 
and a safe was blown but they failed to get into it, with 
the result that nothing was missing. This was not 
known by the police until 7:00 A. M. the next morning. 
About midnight, previous to the break, Officer Hinkley, 
who was on duty at that time, and Officer Kennedy, 
who had just gone off duty, received information that 
a car was parked near a garage without lights. They 

17 



investigated and asked the occupants what they were 
doing there. They said they were sleepy and pulled off 
the road. The officers took them to the station and 
checked the operator's license and registration. As 
everything appeared all right they released them. In 
the morning the number of this car was sent out be- 
cause of the discovery of the break at the store in the 
district where this car was found parked the previous 
night. By the quick thought of these officers sending 
out this registration number, these men were later 
caught in Nashua, N. H. In the car at the time they 
were caught they were carrying a 45 automatic and a 
32 calibre revolver, sticks of dynamite, percussion caps 
and fuses and burglar tools. They were wanted for a 
number of grain store breaks in Massachusetts, New 
Hampshire, Vermont and Maine. This was a very good 
piece of police work and we feel that these officers 
should be given special mention. They have so much 
against these men in New Hampshire and Vermont 
that they could not turn them over to this department. 
In conclusion, I wish to thank the townspeople and 
other members of the Department for their co-opera- 
tion during the year. 

Respectfully submitted, 

COLEMAN J. HOGAN, 

Chief of Police

December 31, 1935 
To the Honorable Board of Selectmen: 
Gentlemen : 

The Board of Fire Engineers respectfully submit the 
report of the Fire Department for the year ending De- 
cember 31, 1935. 

Apparatus 

The apparatus in service consists of a Seagraves 600 
gallon pump; a Reo 300 gallon pump and a Ford Forest 
Fire truck. There is a Hose truck in reserve. 

Hose 

This year we purchased 450 feet of 21/2 inch double 
jacket treated hose. This makes a total of 2,500 feet of 
serviceable 21/2 inch hose, and 800 feet of serviceable 
lYi inch hose. 

Equipment 

The past year we purchased an all service mask to be 
used for gas, ammonia, smoke, etc. ; also a vapor muzzle 
for use on oil fires and confined fire in the home where 
water damage must be kept down. 

19 



Fire Loss 

The fire loss this year has been considerably less than 
last year. A total of $1784 on buildings and $62 on con- 
tents. All but $50 of this was covered and paid by in- 
surance companies. Wood fires cover 12% acres — damage 
$246. Automobile loss, $1. 

Recommendations 

The Board recommends an appropriation of $3000 for 
the year 1936. 

Summary for Year 

The total alarms answered by the department was 71 
of which 22 were whistle and 49 were still. These are 
classified as follows: 

Woods and brush 29 

Grass 15 

Buildings 9 

Chimney 9 

Rubbish 3 

Automobile 3 

Oil Heater 1 

One call to Millis for camp fire, and one call for two 
lost children. On the night of July 3, 1935, the depart- 
ment answered 11 calls for fires. 

There was 5350 feet of hose used during the year. 
Also, 37,006 gallons of water used from hydrants and 
903 gallons drafted from other sources. Of the 71 calls 

20 






for fires, 59 were extinguished by the booster pump 
equipment on the Forest Fire truck using a total of 
10,025 gallons of water. 

During January and June of 1935 there were no calls. 

The Engineers wish to thank the townspeople and

REPORT OF THE SCHOOL COMMITTEE 



To the Citizens of Medfield : 

The following report is submitted for the year 1935 : 

Lower Appropriations 

The School Committee entered the year 1935 with an- 
other cut in its appropriation — from $30,000 to $29,500. 
This represents a drop of more than 12% from the peak 
appropriations of $33,600 in the years 1929 and 1930. It 
is also the smallest amount voted since 1926. And all this 
is in the face of a steady increase in the number of 
pupils enrolled to a 1935 peak of 415. 

Economies 

With decreasing appropriations and an increasing en- 
rollment the School Committee has been compelled to 
follow a policy of the most rigid economy. It has cut 
down the educational opportunities of our boys and girls. 
It has been unable to show any expansion of activities at 
a time when such expansion is greatly needed. 

The "Special Class" called for by State regulations was 
discontinued two years ago. This saved th
